ztweb Posted April 9, 2009 Share Posted April 9, 2009 Thank you to everyone who said prayers. We have good news and a bump.... The good news... There is no sign that there is any active cells AT ALL from the SCLC of 3 years ago. His lungs look great, and they are healing well. The Bump... At dad's check up 9 months ago, there was a spot on the CT (he hasn't had PETs) that was about the size of a ball point pen tip. It was in the opposite lung on the far corner. Today, the CT made it "appear" that the ball point pen tip had grown to about the size of an eraser. The doc said she really isn't worried about this, as on a CT it could be the way he breathed during the scan or left-overs from his recent bronchitis. She told them to not lose sleep over this...however, she did say that she can't wait the now-usual six months, but instead would like to see him in 3 months just to make sure. I had been saying that I hated the 6 month check-ups, so maybe that is my answer...but still, GRRRRR. Dawn, the doc, seems to think that if it IS something, it is slow growing, thus probably not SCLC. If it IS something, it is unrelated to his original cancer. So...we are back to worrying. I had gotten pretty used to having those great reports. I know this isn't a BAD report by any means, but it is still a worry, nontheless. I ask for more prayers, and I ask that if you have any information about what this could be, you let me know...I have counted on you all in the past and you have been so great....thank you, thank you.
