Mike Monaco Posted March 3, 2018 Share Posted March 3, 2018 I have been holding this off due to both the amount of radiation and the likelihood of finding out more than I wanted to find out, but it seems I ended up getting both of these. My brother kind of talked me into it since he had to go through it about 2 or 3 years ago for his lung cancer and it worked out well for him, enabled him to find out it was only one nodule that they could take out without too much problems and he is still cancer free tll now, so I was hoping for the same. Almost got it too. THe nodule is still the same size as it has been since July 2016 and they said it had a SUV of 2.6, according to the doc, not too bad. He said I can wait and watch for now, but eventually it should come out because it may decide to get started up again, than he hit me with a 2x4 in the head. He asked . me about any GI issues and I told him about diverticulitis and a perforation surgery I had this past July. . My GI issues have continued more or less, but 2017 has some improvements in long time issues,ie constipation and bloating which I was able to quite down with probiotics. It took a lot of experimentation but it finally happened, thank God! Anyway the doc continued by saying a number of issues appeared in the PET, including villous adenoma, primary colonic carcinoma, scattered mesenteric lymph nodes and stranding of sigmoid mesial colon. Prominant metobolic activity in the sigmoid colon, SUV 9. So basically, how much trouble am I in, both with the lung and gut? This makes the Lung cancer issue seem not bad at all. I am really sick about this, did not expect hearing this issue, just thought my GI problems were more or less what they have been. I feel like I have been beat up with a bat and left for dead. Hope someone has a cheeeful view to this all. I know I have inflammation, the docs had said that and I do use antibiotics to quell it down as best I can, but this was a shock. BTW, I have a colonoscopy scheduled in 2 weeks,so some cheerful words to hold me til then would be appreciated. Thanks for listening. John Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
