BridgetO Posted May 16, 2017 Share Posted May 16, 2017 On the 24th of this month, I have my first CT follow up after my lobectomy in November. It's abdominal/pelvic as well as chest. I had an advanced and aggressive (Stage 3, grade 3) cervical cancer in 2011, with CT followup every 6 months. NED until last fall and I had become much less anxious about scans, when the lung nodule turned up. Fortunately, it was a stage 1A lung adenocarcinoma rather than a metastasis. (How often do you hear someone say "fortunately" about lung cancer?) But now the scan anxiety has increased some. I was going to be on annual CTs on the abdominal/pelvic, since I'm more than 5 years out on the cervical. I asked for them do do the whole torso, because I'm having some vague and dull discomfort. So now I have two cancers to be concerned about! Whatever! I'm taking my own advice-- or trying to. I'm hanging in there and have a trip planned to visit an old friend the first weekend in June.
