Mendy Posted May 29, 2007 Share Posted May 29, 2007 My husband finished radiation in March. The CT scan shows a pleural thickening in his upper right lobe (the "good" lung) which has been present in previous scans. The oncologist wants to have a PET scan done tomorrow because the pleura has grown a little bit since the last scan. The good news in that his CEA marker is 1.1 and the normal range is 3. Now, his job situation rides on the test results. He has an offer for a very good company that is based in Atlanta and an ok job offer for a local company. We live in MD so this is obviously a big decision. My insurance will not cover him in GA and the new health insurance takes 90 days to kick in. I am in the interview process with a prospective employer in the Atlanta region. Even if I don't get this job, at least the Atlanta company will fly my dh home every other weekend. So many decisions! Oh, and of course both employers expect him to report for the first day tomorrow (Atlanta company will train him in this area before sending him down south). Please say a prayer for great PET scan results tomorrow. I think we are due for some positive changes. Mendy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
