BarbaraL Posted October 30, 2003 Share Posted October 30, 2003 Greetings all! I haven't posted in awhile, because I've been so busy enjoying life. I figured that you'd all understand. My CT scan on 10/14 showed that my disease is stable, and after days of sweating it out over some liver spot, my onc finally called to say it's nothing--a cyst or scar tissue most likely. I went to a pulmonologist for the first time yesterday, and I absolutely adored this woman! She was warm, empathetic and full of answers and questions. I feel blessed to have this woman on my medical team. I've never admitted to you--this group--that I'm still smoking. There it is. The doc prescribed Welbutrin, and has put me on the path to be a non-smoker. I've known I have to quit for ages, but it's been easy to deny since my symptoms have been few. She made it clear how worse off I could be if I continue. Enough said. So, from here, we go to Iressa at first sign of progression (with CT scans every 8 weeks), or clinical trial pitting Iressa vs. new drug, if the clinical trial is ready to start when I need it.
