Eight (8) months ago I had surgery to remove the upper lobe of my right lung.
All the scans made after the surgery up to January 18, 2010 shows that I am free of all cancer in my system, The one in August 2009 OCTREOSCAN, read: IMPRESSION: UNREMARKABLE WHOLE BODY OCTREOTIDE STUDY SPECT. However, my last scan of January 18, 2010, shows an ASCENDING AORTA ANEURISM OF 4.8cm. and Hemphysema. My Onc. did not see any prpoblem with it. He felt that the aneurism was too small for surgery. My thoracic Dr. and my personal Dr. said the same. as for the Hemphysema they feel that it was normal after surgery. I AM VERY CONCERNED WITH THE ANEURISM, because it could rupture and its all over, however, the Drs. feel that at my age and the size of the aneurism it does not warrant Surgery but must keep screening to watch its growth.
ANY EXPERIENCE ON THIS??????
