cindi o'h Posted September 24, 2004 Share Posted September 24, 2004 so, Just got back from the oncologist. He took a look at the films and wants me to see the thoracic surgeon for a videoassisted thoracentesis...Now I making up this word...he told me that he would drain the effusion from my lung and put a camera in there and take a look around.... then they will put the fluid under the scope to see if there are any cancer cells in there...if there are, then we go back to chemo again in the same week... it's all or nothin' for me. Well, it has been a long time since I completed radiation....way over a year, but the onc. said the effusions and lymphadenopathy could still be a result of that....(yeah right) Well, at any rate, we don't know until we know, right? So glad I can vent...Thank you, Cindi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
