ChiMama Posted April 21, 2021 Share Posted April 21, 2021 My next set of scans are coming up on Monday. I skipped my 3 months post-surgery scans that were supposed to be in January because I didn't feel safe in the COVID surge that was happening here and I just couldn't mentally deal with scans at that point. I get Chest/Abdomen/Pelvis, plus a mammogram and ultrasound of the breast where I had biopsies last year. So... tomorrow is the 5 year anniversary of the colonoscopy that revealed I had colon cancer, which started this whole ball rolling. The first news I heard on the way home that day was that Prince had died. What a day. 💜😢💜 The first CT I had after the dx spotted a 9mm upper left nodule. I found the Colon Talk forum early on in the journey, and learned about how people handled the surgeries, the recovery, the walking, the supplements, the success stories, the research, and what to bring to the hospital. In that forum, there's a subgroup where people talk about what's happening with their lung nodules - because one of the places colon cancer metastasizes to is the lungs, so it's an area of concern and watchfulness when "lung things" are discovered. Four years later, when my lung nodule had grown to 1.1cm and the biopsy came out as non-small cell adenocarcinoma, I learned about this board from them too. The good news in all this is that my colon cancer was stage 1, they got it all, and because of the scans I was getting in follow-up, the lung cancer was revealed early enough to also be completely removed and stage 1a, it was primary lung cancer and not a metastasizing from the CC which is a very good thing, and I am pronounced by the surgeon to be "cured." I do have another small 4mm nodule in the right middle lobe, and as we know, it could be just a random "lung thing" of no concern. Fingers crossed! I also see my oncologist and pulmonologist next week. And, lucky me, on Friday of next week, I'm having surgery on my nose to remove a spot of squamous cell skin cancer. It's gonna be a busy week! 😎 Tom Galli, LouT and LexieCat 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
