jcawork Posted June 24, 2004 Share Posted June 24, 2004 Thanks for the feedback. Here is my story. 12/03-5/04 I complained of cough and feeling bad all xrays clear until 5/11/04 (they missed the mass on the 3/04 xray) then I had to have 2 biopsies because the first one was inclonclusive-this of course took a bit of time to get these scheduled and get results pet, MRI's, ct scans etc........more time then I took a week off thinking I would go to Fla to see my family, as my Doc would be out of town same week and I didnt want to start w/ him out of town I also did 3 second opinions including Georgetown this took a week. I then asked for a repeat CT for baseline (head, chest and abdom) since it had been a month and BOOM! 2 cm mass on my liver. I did not have an abdominal CT because the PET was clear in this area just a month before. My Onc. says if its a met I will get cis and cpt11 if its still limited I will get cis avp16 and he needs to know before we start tried to get in sooner for the biopsy, but couldnt called 4 hosiptals. Yes, I am nervous about the wait. I am nervous about everything. I almost cant live w/ the thought this if its extensive. Everything you read is so horrible. Do I have only months? _________________ Jen, looking for hope and the strength to fight 6/04 dx w/ limited sclc one 4cm tumor right lung w/ hilar node involvement.
