So I had my CT scan today and sounds like good news. My doc did mention that two nodules that they saw three months ago had increased in size by a few mm...other nodules were not increased in size..but due to my history, they feel like they should keep doing my CT scans every 3 moths..so, I'm NED for now and optimistic that in 3 months those nodules will not grow..

Thanks everyone for your support..I didn't know where to post this update!!

LexieCat,

You just reduced my anxiety by 100%. It always throws me for a loop when my doctor seems unsure.

I know there is no way to be sure, but she did mention something about the way they slice the scan, etc. I just hope those things don't grow any more, but nothing I can do but wait.

Thanks for being there! It really helps!!!

Apparently, I'm not NED...after my oncologist weighed in on the CT scan, they are saying they are not sure.

It could be infection, or inflammation, or a recurrence. But since there were 3 new nodules and growth in two nodules from 3 mm to 6 mm, they are not saying NED..

So, I go back in 3 months and hope there is no growth and nothing new in the nodule department. These are located in my lower right lobe. 

Hanging in there!!

Ros,

I hate the not sure nonsense also. I had lots of experience. The important thing is your doctors are tracking sizes and locations now. As your CT library gets larger, their understanding about what is going on increases. 

Hang in there. 

Stay the course.

Thanks everyone! I know that my mutation (KRAS) also has a high chance of recurrence but they were hopeful that since all the disease was resected, and then with chemo (which hasn't been proven effective with my type of cancer), that maybe it would stay away. I'm envisioning shrinking nodules every day..We'll see if that works.

 

Take care!!
