Nana Jane Posted January 13, 2005 Share Posted January 13, 2005 I haven't posted here in several months. The past two days I've become increasingly anxious and am convinced I've got a recurrence of tumor in my right lung. On CT scan at the end of November, at the end of my chemo, I had small residual tumor or scarring. I started on Iressa then and have done well, no side effects. For some reason, these thoughts have been consuming me. My chest feels tight and I have pain in the top of my back along the shoulders (both were present when I was diagnosed in July). I have a mild, infreaquent cough (but that was the reason I had the first chest xray in July). It seems to be all I can think about and it's making me a nervous wreck. My docs are convinced I'm having a good response to Iressa because I have the right gene mutation; I won't be convinced until I see my PET scan which is scheduled for Jan 25. So if anyone has any words of reassurance for me, or encouragement, I would appreciate hearing them so much. I feel as if I'm losing my mind tonight! Thank you so much.
