Hi Lisa,

I wish you luck, and I know how anxious I get. Its just such a relief when you get the results and see that your showing ned. I am sure you will be fine. I've had 3 pet-cts, and they have come back ned. I will have you in my thoughts and prayers. Lori

I'm sure your scan will come back showing NED. But I certainly understand the anxiety and uncertainty--happens to me all the time. I seem to be the "queen" of PET scans, having had 7, going on 8, in the last 2 years, along with a CT and MRI thrown in for good measure. My next one is coming up on 7/28. Yeah, I understand! I will be thinking of you tomorrow and will think good thoughts for you. Also, you will be in my prayers. Please let us know when you get the good results!

Hi Lisa, I too wish you well and know NED will be coming through again. While I have not reached that stage yet (still in treatment)...I can fully understand the anxiety of these follow up visits. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Keep us posted, please. Be well, Marilyne

Results of my CT scan were not good - it's in my liver. I'm having CT scan of lungs tomorrow and liver biopsy Monday a.m. Doctor thinks resection of left lobe will be the treatment - 2 inch tumor. I think I'm still in shock - trying to keep busy and not think too much about it.
Sue, I know you've been through this - I'd love to hear from you.

Lisa, I'm so sorry to hear this. I certainly hope that the lung CT comes back clear tomorrow. I know this is not the news you wanted at all and my prayers go out for you. It sounds like your doctor is jumping on this right away and that's encouraging. I'm sure when Sue reads this, she'll chime in and let you know about biopsy, resection, etc. I wish I could give you more information, but all I can offer are my thoughts and prayers, which you have.

Hi Lisa
I'm so sorry you have to deal with more of the treatment. Is this your first scan since treatment ended? I'm thinking not because if I recall you are 10 months out of treatment. I know Sue and Joanne will be able to offer guidance since they have both been through the liver issues.

You will be in my prayers.
Liz

Hi Lisa,

I'm so sorry for the bad ct results. Sue gives me hope that you will be alright too. I know I read on the correctol board where a correctol patient had a liver resection, and 55% of her liver has already grow back and her ct scan was clear. I know the liver can grow back, which is amazing. It sounds like the drs are going to take care of it right away. I will have you in my prayers, and please keep up posted. Lori

Wow Lisa.....ok DEEP breath. I just got back from my follow up with my liver surgeon, and then read this!!

I am deeply sorry for your news...I certainly know first hand how devastating that news is. When I found out, my boyfriend and I were out of town, celebrating one year of being cancer free from lung cancer!!!! We spent the rest of the weekend crying. I just assumed this was a death sentence....but almost 6 months later, here to prove it is not!!!!
So glad to hear that your doctor is proceeding quickly. Did they talk to you about chemo at all? I decided to NOT do chemo, and go straight to surgery. This is a major surgery, but one that you heal from within about 2 months. It is amazing what your body can go through and come back from. My liver has completely regenerated...and there is NED at this point!!!
So much to share....but I'm sure you're trying to absorb all this. I'm hear to ask any questions of.....or vent to!!!
I'm not usually on the boards over the weekend, If you use Facebook, you can find me there now under Sue Marie Giovanni.....or email suerelays@yahoo.com!
My thoughts and prayers are with you!!!

Just had to comment on you Sue, that you are an inspiration to people like me, who are just starting to go through treatment and hope that NED is in my future. You however, have shown me that even if Cancer returns and shows its ugly head somewhere else, there is always hope and always fight left. I admire your tenacity and your courage and your honesty in this forum. Just had to get that out. Be well, Marilyne
