Guest bean_si (Not Active) Posted May 5, 2004 Share Posted May 5, 2004 My scans (thoracic spine, chest and bone scan) showed tumor in right lung decreased since last month 5.6 x 6 cm. to 5.4 x 5.2, originally 8.5 x 8.0) One hot spot near 6th left rib, probably traumatic not malignant. Chest x-ray showed left lung had some decreased volume and slight pleural effusion. Hmmm, this is only about 2 hours after the paramedics said my oxygen levels were 100%. Yeah, bad last two days - extreme pain in chest and abdomen - almost passed out, copious sweating - then ER and admission but I'm home now and glad to be. CT tests showed various weird problems like hemangiomas in spine and 2 lesions in liver and some prominence of intrahepatic biliary tree. Huh? Still waiting for onc office to call with bone scan results. I know the results because I went to hospital and picked up report. However, my onc did come to visit even though my primary had admitted me. He also reviewed the thoracic and chest CTs and called me. He did a digest of them saying they were negative and lung/chest scan showed no active cancer cells. That ain't what the report said. It just said the tumor shrunk. And last week, the onc said no one can say if the remaining tumor is cancerous or non-cancerous. I'm confused. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
