enod20 Posted May 31, 2005 Share Posted May 31, 2005 Hi everyone--my Mom is 65 and was a heavy smoker for many years. She finally quit smoking and 6 years later was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had a pneumonectomy (rt lung) almost 4 years ago. About a month ago she had a PET scan which showed activity in her back and thyroid and lt lung (nodules on lt lung and thyroid). She had a very bad experience with the pulmonologist-she said he was rude to her and ignored her questions/opinions. She was given a referral to an oncologist that she doesn't like and she's waiting for a different referral for another oncologist (Kaiser-HMO-so her options are limited). My questions are regarding--what can I expect in terms of what docs may say, how she might react, etc. This round is so different than before when she just had a relatively simple surgery. Where should I post my questions on this website? I just don't know what to do. Any assistance greatly appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
