CT Scan Results- Supraclavicular Node Normal! Normal!


Recommended Posts

Hey Folks,

Just got back from my onc. He said that the scans look good! Lots of changes due to treatment, including small plueral effusion around the right lung and my heart, but that this was normal given radiation, chemo, and surgery? He said that my lungs have been "traumatized." Sounded scarey to me though! My cough is about the same, but breathing is not compromised, Doc said it would get better on it's own. I was not given anything for it. The nodule in my left lung is still unchanged and believed to be benign. We will just continue to watch it. No chemo was necessary because there was no active cancer going on anywhere! I don't need to go back to see him untill Jan.!

Thank you for the prayers!!! God Bless you all!

THAT IS SUCH FANTABULOUS NEWS!!!I know that the Plueral Effusion thing is scary, but I have developed one too since surgery/rad/chemo and the docs said this is normal and expect it to clear up on it's own.....I guess we have to take their word for it!

Thanks for the good news -- it made my day!!!
