rvillella Posted October 6, 2006 Share Posted October 6, 2006 I did the PET and the CT Scan today and the ONC Nurse, my new ONC, called to tell me about it. The nodule hasn't grown since August but it had a slight uptake. Guess they mean that it likes sugar water. Then he said that I have fluid around my heart, which when I did a search on it seems to be somewhat associated with cancer. I know a lot of you have nodules and they grow a little or shrink a little so I am thinking that this may be okay. It is only 1 cm total so not really that big. It's the fluid around the heart that is bothering me. I don't look at the stats but I know it can't be that good. I have to wait now for the thoracic surgeons PA to call and talk to me about the options. Another week or two and then the MRI is coming up. On top of all this my wife is in San Antonio in a class learning how to be a manager for a retail store, and I will be moving in the near future to whereever her new store is. So a lot on my plate and not enough time. Ralph Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
