Hello everyone.

Just wanted to give an update about my health and situation.

I'm scheduled for an octreoscan on Monday morning at 9 am to see if this carcinoid cancer has spread beyond my lungs. I have no idea when I will get the results back. It's kinda funny. I feel like me and my doctor are reading the same internet sites about this cancer and the tests. I don't think he has treated this kind before. I plan to ask him at our next visit.

Several weeks ago my dr. had said that rfa (radio frequency ablation) would be a viable option for me. Now he says that if the cancer has spread and I have multiple sites ...I wouldn't be a candidate for the rfa.

I really feel just like I'm starting over from the beginning again. New dx, new tests, new anxieties to fret over. And so it goes.
