Guest TROY MARTIN Posted August 26, 2005 Share Posted August 26, 2005 In mid June my mom was dx with sclc extensive. Since then she has been recieving aggresive rounds of chemo. All of her levels and counts have remained up throughout the process. She really has not been that sick either. She has actually gained 2 pounds. She had a pet and cat scan yesterday. The news came today that everything showed significant shrinkage or coplete resolvement of some areas. Her main tumor was 45mm by 25 mm and is now 29 mm by 20mm. The onc. seemed really pleased as did my mom. I did read the report myself though and came across some things that scare me. Most of the report was written in terms that I cant even begin to explain, but I did read an increase in pleural effusion since the 1st scan and also the word aclestasis or something like that. The word nephrectomy was always used. Please help me with this if you know anything about it. I was having a great day until I read these words.
