Latest CT Scan

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Sorry I have been away from the boards for awhile. I have been enjoying a somewhat "normal" life lately and today I had my reality check. I got the results of my most recent scan and it showed some definite progression. The bold letters on the top of the report read: Disease Progression. And then of course all the medical terms describing every gory detail. I was expecting to have some more stability and I think the news caught me off guard. I started to cry and I couldn't stop. I think I have been holding it in too long and today was the day it had to come out. I really want to get to the point that no matter what the scan or report shows I will be okay with it and just be willing to start the next thing. I wonder if that's even possible? I will be seeing the specialist from Denver on Friday and then will figure out what the next plan is?

Take Care,

Rachel

Goshdarnit, Rachel :cry: . There are MANY options you will find available to you ~ just wish you didn't have to work so hard to find the right one. Sometimes the cards we get to play are so bad, we want to trade them ALL in for a totally new hand. Oh, that it were that simple. You know we all will be rooting for you. As difficult as it is, try not to let this setback get the best of you.

BUMMER!!! I can't say as I blame you for feeling down and out. However, now it's time to go to the next plan of action. As long as your doc's haven't run out of plans, then your still good to go. :wink:

(((((((((((((RACHEL)))))))))))))))))

Hang in there and keep us posted. Sending positive vibes and extra prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear about the progression, Rachel. And it's ok to cry about it -- it's crushing news. BUT, you have lots of treatment options available to you and you'll do what you have to knock the tumor back into submission. I'll send lots of prayers your way. Stay strong.

Rachel,

I'm sorry to hear about your news and it is definitely okay to cry, I do every time my oncologist gives me bad news...I think it is a normal response. Then you move on and fight. Be strong and keep fighting. I used to get mad every time I saw another ad for Breast Cancer Awareness because I thought what about "lung cancer" but now I know better that if a cure is found for breast cancer, it will be that much closer for us and we deperately need a cure.

Tarceva may just be the ticket for you ....especially since you are a non-smoker.

Don't get discouraged, go after it and FIGHT. There are plenty of new developments showing great promise.

Healing CAN and DOES occur. There are many long term survivors out there as living proof.

Take Care,

Joe
