Lena , Hello. Welcome.
I wonder if the same thing happened to you as to me. When they tried to biopsy my tumor it was in such an awkward spot that
they could not get a good piece of tissue. They did tell me because it was a large "ball" of a tumor that it was non small cell lung cancer but-----
They started my treatment with chemo and radiation to shrink it then they were able to do surgery. When I woke up from surgery I asked well----------
" What kind of non-small cell was it?" and they replied " We don't know for the chemo and radiation killed it and all that is left if like scar tissue"
So I never will kno
w if it was one of those types that Tom is asking you about.
So I will just ask , Did they think it was small cell or non small cell?
Keep us posted. We will try to answer any questions you have.
Double-dog-dang! I wouldn't want to wait 3 months either! I can't tell you how many times we suffered from it's gone-to-it's back-to-it's gone again. Once I remember we got a different diagnosis for three running months. But, unfortunately, scanziety and uncertainty are part of our new normal.
So, first I pray it is an adoration, a false-positive, a inconsistent interpretation. I'm sticking with that until I hear differently.
Do something fun this weekend!
Stay the course.
