Well, to summarize in short...
1. Finished 1st-line treatment, I am in-operable, original Onc after reading latest PET says we need a new PET in 3 Mo. due to too close to end of chemo to accurately interpet hot spots.
2. 2nd opinion folks are not worried about the lower lobe, but want to do a biopsy on the lymph nodes, If still cancerous, they will remove with surgery the 4 or 5 nodes and probably upper right lobe as main tumor has shrunk.
So each institution is looking at this totally different!!! and both are among the best in Michigan.
Here is what I would like to do, jump ship to 2nd opinion folks, but continue with 1st pulminary Doc to find out about lower lobe, although it will require two biopsies within a week or so apart because each institution have different ideas.
What do you think ? !!!!!!!
