Moonbeam Posted June 28, 2019 Share Posted June 28, 2019 Hi All. It's been a while. Review my husband: left pneumonectomy. Stage 2b. 4 rounds chemo. Finished in April. First scan clear. Thank goodness but found an aneurysm on the aorta. Turned out to be on his intercostal. Had an endovascular procedure (May 3rd) and his vascular surgeon did endovascular coils instead of a stent. Much safer. About 3 weeks after that procedure, my husband complained of hip pain in both hips. Went to PT and pain gone in left hip but stayed in right. First week in June, it was constant - down thigh, base of spine, right testicle, behind right knee and in groin area. He has terrible trouble sleeping, hard time riding in the car. Finds relief laying on the floor. It's constant and can be aggressive and at times, unbearable. Can't imagine worse then having his left lung removed. ;( Finally after countless calls, he is scheduled for a CT angio chest with and without contrast for Tuesday. That test is for his check up for his endovascular procedure and they say it will show a broad area including down his spine????? I'm feeling like he needs an X-ray as well. Has anyone ever had this? Should I be worried it's something on his spine or a tumor that has cropped up anywhere? He's due for his 2nd scan for his 3 mos. checkup next month. However, I'm sure this CT angio of chest will show either clear or not? Any help or advice would be great. Miss everyone and going to try to catch up on everyone's post this weekend.
