ursol Posted December 1, 2006 Share Posted December 1, 2006 I spoke to my oncologist today about the PET Scan results and next steps. The Thoracic team seems pretty certain that it is cancer in my right Adrenal gland. Although, they will not know for sure until they take it out. Next step is first Brain MRI to insure no other spread and then laporascopy surgery to remove the Adrenal gland. MRI will occur next week, since they are still trying to get the surgeon, that may be end of next week or week after. I am however still holding out hope that the PET Scan is wrong and it is not cancer. If it's lung cancer metastasis, I'm restaged IV and I will begin three or four rounds of cisplatin, docetaxol and Avastin. I was told that this combination with Avastin has still not passed phase three trials but he is recommending this. He also thinks the best thing for me is after the four rounds of chemo to continue on Avastin for a full year. Has anyone gone through this combination before? Anyhow, such is life, I still cannot believe this is happening. I know God has a plan but I prefer to be in charge of this plan myself.
