MrsOckert Posted October 17, 2006 Share Posted October 17, 2006 I'm Valorie. Just finished 48 weeks of chemo for HEP C. Two weeks later diagnosed with 7 mm nodule in left lower lung and enlarged lymph nodes. Two days later had apt with pulmonary dr. He ordered blood work (for CEA? marker?) PFT (showed early stages emphysema) and a PET scan for this coming Saturday. Chest X-ray and CT scan say possibly malignant. I've read so many other posting with lung nodules and people say report says probably benign and follow up with scans every couple months. Since mine doesn't say that do I have more reason to be concerned. If it is cancer what do I have to look forward to? When I was dx with Hep C it was very frightening and gathering all the info I could made it a lot easier. I'm concerned about the finanacial aspects of this, how sick will I get and all kinds of other questions. My next apt is Tues the 24th at 9:00 am so I will know what's what then. It scares me that all this seems to be moving so quickly. Thanks for listening. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
