Patty Posted July 21, 2006 Share Posted July 21, 2006 First of all, I would like to thank everyone that helped with advice on what to do about my suspicious spot. I really appreciate all of your input. I did go ahead & have the mediastinoscopy, which didn't help, since the surgeon could not reach "the spot". Something about my Aorta being in the way . I was kind of getting overwhelmed and since I wasn't able to meet with my onc until yesterday, I decided maybe I could take an imaginary vacation away from cancer. So I stayed away from this site and the on-line cancer support group I participate in. I have spent a lot of time going back & forth to MI, enjoying my family (granddaughters!!), having my granddaughter stay here with me, and trying my best to thoroughly enjoy everything I could as much as I could. Back to reality now though. I am scheduled for Chest CT Scan & PET/CT Scan next week. My oncologist has set me up with an appt for a second opinion on Aug 2 at IU in Indianapolis with a group of doctors who deal only in lung cancer. So I am satisfied with that, for now. You all were always on my mind anyways and I knew in my heart I would be coming back to sad news. Especially, all those who have passed on. They are at peace and free of pain. Nevertheless, it's sad and heartbreaking. I didn't get a hall pass-didn't really think I'd be away for so long. Thanks again, Patty Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
