ksflwrpetals Posted March 6, 2013 Share Posted March 6, 2013 My scan two weeks ago showed that I am better and that the nodules were shrinking. Friday evening we were involved in a roll-over accident near KC during rush hour and the worst of it is my truck. He had no injuries, my arm was scraped and is healing nicely. My oncologist has suspended my chemo saying 'it is not needed at this time' The review board he talks to thinks the 'mass' near and too close to my heart is actually scar tissue from the surgery (two yrs next month) and the nodules are small enough to barely be called nodules at this point. I will have another CT next month with another review to see where we are. I have much to be thankful for. Sometimes it takes a couple visits to understand what he is trying to say. When I first recurred, since it was in 2 lobes, he said no kind of surgery would help as it was in 2 lobes. Now, he is saying that if the upper is indeed scar tissue, and one of the nodules is essentially dead, if the other persists, it may be removed by expiration. I didn't understand the change in opinion. Has anyone else had experience or a similar event regarding this removal when surgery had not been an option? (he is so intelligent and versed in oncology, but we don't converse on the same plane most of the time) Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
