    Port question

    Hi Michelle - I've decided to keep it for now. When I can go 6 months between scans, I'll get it removed. But I'm still on the 90 day protocol and finding a vein for CT contrast is no picnic.

    Radiation again?!

    Kleo, Conventional Radiation then precision radiation to the same tumor, yes. The reason is the precision radiation can be precisely administered in both area and duration. Stay the course. Tom

  10. What a stressful day yesterday was! By the time I got home from a 2 hour drive from Philly in rush hour traffic I needed to eat and crawl into PJs. The official reading of the PET/CT will be available today from the radiologist. A PA is supposed to call me with the those final results. However, the lung surgeon I saw yesterday did his own preliminary reading on the PET/CT though. He isn't convinced that it is actually malignant due to the borders of the 5cm mass (lobulated, not spiculated) and the way it "lit" up (weakly, not bright). He also sees a calcification within the mass. So instead

  14. Hi Frank, sounds like pretty good news. Of course, would have been better if non-malignant, but I hope it will be stage 1a and you won't need more treatment.
