Jennedy Posted June 26, 2020 Share Posted June 26, 2020 Hi all, I found a lump in my neck 4 wks ago. That led to a chest Xray, CT scan, bronchoscopy, EBUS, MRI and PET scan. Prior to the PET scan, I was told Stage III adenocarcinoma. The MRI came back clean, but the PET scan showed it was also in my shoulder. The shoulder that I have been undergoing physical therapy for. So now I'm stage IV. Next week, I see a radiology oncologist and will start 10 radiation treatments. We are waiting for results of genetic testing to see what else to do. Stage III, I had come to terms with, I would have chemo and feel awful for a few months but I could fight it. I'm in good shape. I walk marathons. But Stage IV seems so much worse - Fatal. I'm terrified to put it bluntly. The change in stage was today so I'm still processing. Thank you in advance. Jenny Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
