Hi all, I hate to even have to share this with you, as I know we all are fighting for our lives. I got CT scan results today. Very, very bad. One in January showed no spread. This one was dated 6/3/05, so it's hard for me to believe that things could have gotten this bad this fast.
It showed multiple new modular densities in lung bases bilaterally. Also new bilateral pleural effusions. New hypoattenuating but slightly heterogeneous focus seen in the right lobe of the liver with a maximum dimesnsion of 1.4cm.There is alsoseen in the retroperitoneum changes. Colon is mildly distended with fluid. Pelvis also shows changes at the sacrum and coccyx. These are large fluid collections. I don't know exactly what all this means other than when he explained that it is in my lungs, liver and pelvic area and that I'm stage 4 and chemo will be changed and if I don't do it, i have 4-6 months and if I do, I have 12-21 monhts. THIS TOTALLY SUCKS!!! Sorry, I can't really write anything else right now. Just know I love you all and you've been the best and I will try to hang on as long as I can.
Love ya, Judy(grandma047)
