Sandy N Posted March 19, 2021 Share Posted March 19, 2021 Hello! First of all, I'd like to say that this forum and everyone on it is priceless! My hat is off to you all! Secondly, I'd like to briefly address lung cancer that has spread to the adrenal glands since I haven't seen that topic floating around. I suppose it's out there but I may have had to drill down a bit in the forums. And I'm too lazy to do that. I admit it. I am officially Stage IV (was diagnosed Stage IIIA Fall 2019) since the adrenal gland met. Two small blips were found in my right gland and another small one on my left. Not too impressed that it went to the other side as well but whaddaya do? If this happens to you, please DO NOT PANIC! My oncologist assured me that this was extremely common. I have just completed 4x of carboplatin (that dose was a heavy-hitter...more so than when I received it the first time around), Alimta and Mvasi. I have a scan on March 26th to see if this either eradicated it, is containing it, rendered it non-active, or, hopefully, the blessed NED! I was told I'd probably still go on maintenance no matter the outcome and will continue to have scans for every 3 months at least for the next year. Also, when these blips were found, I did get the blood tests to check for mutations. Nothing. Just Mr. Adenocarcinoma trying to set up residence somewhere else in my body. But he is going to continue to being served with eviction notices. Anyway, I hope this helps someone who may experience the same thing. On another note, I did mention above that my first post-adrenal-treatment scan is next week. Your prayers and good thoughts are much appreciated because I don't think any of us ever get past the scanxiety!
