babylove91297 Posted October 12, 2007 Share Posted October 12, 2007 Hi everyone, I just got back from the surgeon and right now I don't know if I should laugh or cry. He said that the ct scan on my chest showed some spreading but only to 1 lymph node. He said that it is uncharacteristic of small cell, and they think that it might be non-small cell. He talked with my oncologist and now my oncologist wants to get a second opinion on the biopsy. I am supposed to call him on Monday morning and he wants to see me in his office to decide what to do next. If it is small cell he said that they will just do chemo, but if it is non-small cell they will schedule the surgery. But I am supposed to call the surgeon back next Friday. I am so tired of waiting, I don't understand this one bit. I do know that I won't wait until Friday to contact the surgeon, I think that is to long of a wait. I want to get this taken care of now!! The results of the MRI came back just fine....no mets. But this is not really reassuring to me right now. Why does this take so long???? I do realize that they treat the 2 cancers differently, but I just can't stand sitting here waiting for answers. If the hospital made a mistake on the lung biopsy findings and it is non-small cell, what difference does that make?? The surgeon tried to explain it to me but I really still don't understand. Sorry for rambling on, I just need answers, and nobody seems to have any for me right now. I will update you as soon as I find out anything else.
