LolasDaughter Posted December 11, 2010 Share Posted December 11, 2010 Mom had scans last week which showed potential growth in her lung, and they did a PET scan Monday to determine if it was scar tissue or new growth. Unfortunately the PET scan indicated the original lung tumor is growing. Since Mom's original tumor was a mixed histology of Adenocarcinoma (NSCLC) and SCLC, they will be doing a broncoscopy Monday to determine the type. Her Onc has said they will do six rounds of chemo and the cocktail will be determined once they know the type of cancer they are dealing with. She has also been dealing with recovery from a hip fracture this summer and is have a filter put in today for blood clots they've found in her leg. With this and long term effects of her previous, rigorous treatment, Mom is certainly not as strong as she had been for her initial round. And so we enter this next phase of the journey! As I recently posted, we remain thankful for how well she has done and will continue as we have - with faith in God and one day at a time.
