Tbaker Posted April 19, 2020 Share Posted April 19, 2020 I was diagnosed around the 23rd of March 2020. I've had 2 Ct scans back to back,waited around 10 days to get in to see a pulmonary doctor, he ordered a Pet scan around 7 days later. Then an appointment with the Thoracic surgeon who went over the scan with us, unsure if I'm stage 3 or stage 4? Thoracic surgery set up a stress test, ekg now a pulmonary test. I have an appointment with him on the 23rd before my divinci biopsy on the 27. My fear is... what if it was stage 3 and it has within this last month of waiting it has grown into stage 4? My cancer is in the right lung and in some lymph nodes the iffy is at the bottom of the lung next to the lining, if it has gone into that stage 4. Doctor said at stage 3 absolutely curable, stage 4 it is contained to the lung and is containable and treatable. Well if there is/was a chance of curable (stage 3)then why all the waiting? It is so hard to stay hopeful knowing that this thing is growing while waiting. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
