TracyD Posted November 12, 2008 Share Posted November 12, 2008 I got my scan results friday, but found that I couldn't post them until I was able to process them myself. That finally came today when the remaining question from my scan was answered. The bottom line is that I got a mixed bag of results. It seems funny that when I've told this to people, along with the actual results, they take it as good news, I don't quite see it that way. It's definitely not BAD news, but good news??????? The area that was new in the abdomen last time has diminished, as did the lymph nodes. However, the primary tumor continues to grow and press on a couple of ribs causing a bit of discomfort, but not too bad. Some nodules have shrunk, others have grown. The biggest area of concern at this time is the spread to my spine, I now have a spot at the base of my spine. I am having an MRI saturday and am meeting with a radiation oncologist on tuesday to determine a course of action. Consistent with my last scan, I have lost a lot of volume in my right lung, it is still working but it is about half the size it used to be. I continue to feel good and go on with my life. I will not worry about things that I have no control over. Those things I will place in Gods hands, and my wonderful oncologist.
