jetcat Posted April 7, 2008 Share Posted April 7, 2008 My husband's consult is tomorrow to schedule the biopsy of the mass in his lung. I have managed to get some control of the racing "disaster fantasies" that plagued me in the first couple of days after discovering the mass, but I do have questions rattling around that I wonder if any of you can help with. Here goes: Is it likely that the CT of the lungs that confirmed the 3 cm mass would have shown us if there were more, smaller spots in the lungs? I'm wondering if, since the radiologist didn't mention anything else in the report if it is safe to assume that there is only the one mass? Does anyone know how long I might expect it to take to get the results of the biopsy? We don't have copies of any of the reports so far. Should we be asking for those for our own records and should the docs willingly give them? Seems like we have been the last ones with information so far . . . frustrates me and I want someone to give us ALL the information, not just an abbreviated view. I'm having trouble with trust because of our experience with my husband's mom. She went to the doctor last July and they failed to diagnose her properly. Her cancer metastasized and she died on March 2nd. This is not a good mental framework with which to enter our current situation. Thanks for your thoughts.
