Hi! Long time. I had my scan last January 18, but I did not read it My Onc. called me and told me that everything was great with no signs of cancer....7 months since my Surgery. However......Two days ago I went to ask for a copy of the Scan for my Thoracic Dr. and what I read scared the heck out of me. The report reads in part: THERE IS ANEURYSMAL DILATATON OF THE ASCENDING THORACIC AORTA 4.8 cm STABLE. lungs hyperinflated consistent with Emphysema without congestion. 4mm Hypodensity in the left lobe of the liver, STABLE SINCE PRIOR STUDY, most likely a small cyst (?)(never heard this before). The Emphysema got me because I never had this before and I do not smoke. The Aneurism scares me. I will be seeen both; My Cardiologist and my Thoracic Doctors next week, However, my Onc and my Cardiologist tell me that 4cm aneurysm is not that bad??????????. However they all are extremely happy that there is no signs of cancer any place in my system. I am also happy to know that , however these new findings are of concern to me and these Doctors do not discuss these things by phone so I will wait until I meet with them. Any comments??????. I don't even pickup my grand daughter not to cause problem with the aneurysm.??????
Otherwise I have my pains and knowing that I no longer have this cancer is very comforting.
I have also learned how to control my Depression, except for the new findings.
Anyone with this experience?
