CT scan results


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I had a ct scan the Monday before last and the nurse called me this morning with the results. She said that there was some slight progression in two nodules otherwise everything else was stable. I have been feeling pretty good lately and have been doing well mentally too. When I heard the word progression I got really quiet and then she asked if I was okay. I said "no I just want this awful thing to go away." The tears soon followed...I hate that! When I get angry or upset it is hard to recompose myself. The nurse was so nice and started telling me a story about a man who had three failed chemos and the fourth one he was trying was working. I'm not sure if that made me feel better or not? I will meet with my local oncologist next Monday and go over the scan and then have an appointment with the lung specialist at the end of this month so he can tell me what the next step is. I feel good right now and I am going to go with that. It is a beautiful spring here in Colorado and I'm enjoying every minute of it!

Hi Rachel, I am so sorry you didn't get the news you were hoping for. Now, you have to wait to see the Dr. and I'm sure that is also difficult. Please try and stay positive. As many of the others have said, sometimes it's the 3rd or 4th line therapy that really does the trick! I know you and your Dr. will come up with a great new plan next week. Hang in there! Shelley

Waiting is the hardest thing. In the meantime, continue enjoying the weather and all the beauty that Colorado has to offer, which is a lot. Your overall sense of well-being, frame of mind, and attitude are a vital part of your "fight." Best wishes and Aloha,
