Flyman35 Posted July 16, 2008 Share Posted July 16, 2008 I may wander a bit in this but bear with me. Today was Tom’s last radiation treatment. He met with the radiologist after the treatment as he does every Wednesday. He was told that they were going to wait 4 more weeks for the radiation to work and then rescan. This is fine. BUT here is where the confusion comes in. Then scan is set up for Sunday 8/17/08 and they are only going to re-assess the liver. Tom said the radiologist seems to THINK that the lung tumor is gone. Why would they wait 4 weeks for the rad to work which they only did to the chest and then only scan the liver. I’m sorry but the I THINK the lung tumor is gone is not good enough for me. Since he is going to be in the machine anyway why don’t they just go from stem to stern? It makes no sense to me. I want peace of mind. Even if it’s still there but stable I am okay with that. I just need to know one way or the other so I can move forward. What are they thinking? Could it be that if tyhe liver tumor is gone they can proceed with the surgery to remove the rest of the lung tumor? BUt if they THINK or know for sure that the lung tumor is gone then no surgery would be necessary right? I just don't know. We have an appt with the Onc on Monday and I will voice my concerns to him at that time. An extremely confused, Denise Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
