Hey guys, just looking for some more prayers and well wishes today, Im going for my second CT, the 3 month PET/CT was clear but they said they saw some pixelation on one of my lungs, which is why Im having the CT today, to verify that it is nothing. They never, with all the testing I had before, said anything about a lung issue, so Im not really worried, but of course I am a little. My initial issue was Squamous of the Base of Tongue. So unless I contracted cancer on my lung DURING my treatments for my tongue issue, then I dont think I really have anything to fret over. Still.......

Thanks and Godspeed all,

GRAVEY and I'll let you know how it went.

Can you elaborate on that term. I have never heard it. I have my 9 month CT on the 10th of May. I have never gotten a clear scan as I have four lung spots that keep showing up. Abnormalities in the lungs are common in about 23% of the population. Unfortunetly in many instances only prolonged scanning and comparison will yield a final diagnosis. I commend you in your relaxed attitude as I have had a difficult time with it. Best wishes and prayers on your results but don't get discouraged if it takes a few more scans to put the doctors at ease.

The best I can describe it in laymans terms, not for the CT. You know when you watch TV especially HD and you have interence or loss of signal. Usually you'll see little squares that freeze on the screen or blur through, that's pixelation of they also say digitize.

Pixels are how digital photos are made up the sharper the image the more pixels. A pixel is just a tiny spot of color, when they are all combined they make the picture. The higher the resolution, the more pixels.

Prayers are with you, Gravey.

I do, as does the Government, and others on this forum, question the reliability of the CTs. Not sure what better option is possible, though. Do know my Sister's lung problem showed-up on an Xray. Does seem that they could monitor whatever it is over a couple months- to see if it's still there, and whether or not it is getting larger. They do have to catch the lung C at the earliest time possible, though- all agree on that.

Again- all hopes and Prayers are with you, that this is nothing to be concerned about.

Just got the results of my second CT on Monday, there is a "1/2 tumor on right lung now. I had Squamous Cell with Primary on left tonsil, stage 4, spread to both sides of neck down to almost the lungs. It was non operable, had horrible Chemo and 37 Rad treatments last year, now its back. Sh..t I did not expect him to tell me this. He said it is very serious. No treatment plan yet, just found out Yesterday 5/10/10. Still dealing with feelings over this news.

Sorry to hear the news, but don't give up, my cancer came back three times. The last time in 2005 and I am still here 5 years later

Try'n take it all in stride. Too many unknowns, now, to get shook by it. All it means is another battle is nearing on the horizon. Many of us will likely be there, too, and some, like Hondo, have already been there. Sorry to hear the news. Keep us informed, please, and

My heart goes out to you. Fight it with all you got. I will say a prayer for you. My neighbor had lung cancer 3 years ago and he is doing great. He just got back from a trip out to Vegas. Hang tough.

REPOSTED

For what it's worth, you might read the Post on 'The China Study' by Dr T Colin Campbell. In brief, they have found the our diet rich in Animal Proteins is definitely linked to high rates of cancer incidence and progress. Another book or DVD is called 'Healing Cancer from the Inside' - Mike Anderson, which discusses why cancer comes back as it has in your case.

I hope you buy the China Study book (or download it) and get to see all your family grow up.

PS Guys, the earlier posts are more than 7 years old !

Sorry guys, I have been busy with buying a truck from my dad, had to go out of town to get it, big hassle, yadda yadda yadda, I havent gotten the results back yet as my doc wouldnt give them to me over the phone, wants me to have a visit to go over them, a ploy to get more copays out of me I suspect. I will be seeing her this week though, Im not exactly in a rush to go, for if their IS something afoul, I am in no hurry to find out.
Thanks for your concern guys, and I'll keep you informed.

I will be thinking of you on Friday and you will be in my prayers.

I love how the doctors won't tell you anything over the phone - even good news.

Take care,

Glenna
