Kasey Posted January 10, 2008 Share Posted January 10, 2008 January 4th was the 3 year anniversary of my LC surgery. My doc told me last visit (In July) that with a good report this time, my chance of recurrence goes down and survival rate shoots up!!! That was terrific to hear. This week was my visit. And the result.....less than what I had wished, hoped, and dreamed for. Seems there is a 'spot' on the lower right lobe. I stayed in Bethesda for an additonal afternoon to have a high resolution CT scan. Doc thinks it may be an artifact ~ wasn't sure what he meant by that. When I had the PET scan on Tuesday I believe some of the radioactive material seeped into my arm and it got all puffy and bruised and black and purple. Doctor says that some of that bruising MAY have swept through my bloodstream and settled in the bottom right lobe. Now we don't know this is what it is or isn't. Instead of remaining on 6 month checkups, I am now back to three. So I'll return in April and see what is going on and IF this spot remains. This is difficult to report after so many NED's in a row. If the spot is still there in April then we will discuss what action will need to be taken. Thanks for all the good wishes and prayers this week. I know they worked as this spot is only in the mm category. We all know it could be much worse. So Fred and I are just hoping that April comes real fast and all will be clear again. Until then, please continue to keep me in your thoughts. You are all the absolute best! Kasey Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
