palves Posted September 25, 2004 Share Posted September 25, 2004 Dad saw an general onc this week as well as the pulminologist. The pulminologist suggested another bronchoscopy to try to determine what is lighting on the PET scan. Is it effects still from the radiation pneumonitis? Is it still the tumor? Is it scar tissue? Many questions, doesn't seem like any answers. The pulminologist conferred with the Onc who seemed to agree. However this Onc. talked w/ another Onc. who disagrees. My parents seemed to trust Onc 2 more than Onc 1. But I have to give them some guidance as to whether to go ahead or wait (Onc 2 suggested 6 months). I think 6 more months is toooo long in the scope on LC. What would you all do in this case? Thanks Paula Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
