I have been talking to MD Anderson, and they said that they did find some worrisom nodes in my neck and also the one in my mediastinum area. Some may be able to be biopsed others are to deep and small. So a possible plan may now include IMRT. I will repeat the scans before starting any rads. As far as the lung tumor, watch and wait... Thats okay, it's just hard knowing that there is something in my lung that does not belong there. As long as it does not grow and or cause any breathing issues, I should be fine leaving it there.
The news with my shoulder is not so good. I guess I reinjured it , maybe moving MIL in bed. I have new tears, partial deep tear of the labrum and loose debris floating in fluid that should not be there. The Dr. said that if it were any other person he would take them to surgery and fix it right away. But since it was me, and I had such a hard time with the pain management last time, he is going to try giving me Pred. YUCK. I do not like taking Pred, but if it may help me have less pain I will give it a try. He didn't sound to hopeful that it will work, but wants me to try it anyways. If it is not improving in a few weeks or if it gets worse, then I will have to have it fixed. Another operation..
My emotions are all over the place. One minute I am feeling so positive and then the next I am just ready to call it quits. I know that I have to keep going forward, but it's hard.
