golden275 Posted January 9, 2007 Share Posted January 9, 2007 Saw my pluminary specialist today. As usual, I get nervous having a dr's appt. He said my breathing sounds good and I look healthy. I lost one pound. Things just don't taste very good and I have little appetite except for pizza. He suggested I look around for a pizza place . Doesn't want me to lose weight I guess. I hate to cook. Wonder if the Tarceva is making me lose my taste. About once a year I ask hard questions. He brought up my getting a CT scan and/or PET scan , but I feel if they can't do anything for me , why should I put myself through that. He suggested I talk to my oncologist. Have an appt with him in 4 weeks. It seems I had a fast growing cancer 5 years ago which seems to be taken care of with chemo and surgery. But when it returned it is a different cancer. He told me I am very lucky and it seems to be a slow growing cancer this time. He is very honest with me but I get upset when told I still have cancer. LOL. No reasoning with me some days. I ask questions but want better answers. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
