David A Posted June 9, 2004 Share Posted June 9, 2004 HI everyone, Saw my oncologist today and got the results from the cat scan I had last week. The results are neither good nor bad. The mass in the plurea of my right lung has thickened some he couldn't tell me how much, the cat scan still showed a mass in my medistinum and a spot on my right side ribcage. After almost a year they have finally said that is probably wehy I have so much pain in my shoulder and numbness in my arm at times, I feel validated if that makes sense. I haven't been getting chemo or anything for overr two months so I feel very fortunate, also I'm choosing not to have any chemo at this time, hde told me I could start back up any time I wanted. Dr. seems to think a drug just recently approved by fda called Alimta may work well for me, he said the University of Michigan took part in trials to get it approved though for the cancer caused by asbestos. Sorry bout the long post. Thanks to all who prayed and wished me well, I know it helps. David A Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
