Bengel, A Question


Recommended Posts

Hi Bud,

Were your lungs completely clear when you had PCI? Reason I ask is I am having PCI, had my 3rd of 10 today.

My gp gave me a copy of the scan report and there is still a node that is affected in my right lung.

His opinion of it is not nearly as optimistic as the radiation oncologists. Needless to say I'm worried.

Hi Newbie,

I'm unclear about the initials PCI? Yes, my lungs were clear. That is what baffled my primary care doctor because I had been under his care for 20 years. It was only after the chest x-ray at the ER that they discovered the tumor. It was 2cm. After chemo and radiation it had shrunk to 1 cm. My onocologist was pleased. I then had surgery to remove the middle lobe of my right lung. They found no cancer in any lunph nodes. Since then all of my scans and chest x-rays have been "clean".

I hope this helps, remember our hope is in the Lord.
