As some of you know I had a CT scan in February and they saw "subtle changes" in my left lung so the scan was being sent to the Cancer Review Board. I finally heard from my rad onc yesterday and he said there was a lesion in my lung but the nodule didn't look the same as the one I had which was NSCLC adenocarcinoma. I went numb at first but after it all sank in I realized that just because there is a nodule in my lung it doesn't mean it's cancerous. Not all nodules are malignant and I was encouraged by the fact that it didn't look the same as the one I was treated for in 2009.
I'm sure you have all already guessed that I will now be playing the "watch and wait" game again. I will be having scans every 3 months to see if it grows. I was also relieved when he told me that the tumor I originally had was no where to be found, he said it appears to have disappeared completely.
I've been getting good reports lately from my ENT, the larynx still looks good and my voice is still strong. So all in all, I'd say I'm doing pretty good, until May when I go for my next scan - LOL - then I'm sure I will be a nervous wreck while I wait for the results. But that's okay, one week of worrying every 3 months isn't so bad :) Until May I intend to enjoy life and forget about everything else.
Hope everyone is doing well and improving daily.
My best to all of you,
