Help me understand! They found a tumor in my husband's lung. CT and PET did not show anything else. They removed the lower lobe of his right lung. Found two swollen lymph nodes in his chest. Did chemo for as preventative measure. Four mo. of treatment later, he had three hot spots on his PET. Now they want to do radiation and more chemo. With the surgery and chemo he got so tired and weak. The Pet was 6 wks after his last chemo treatment. How did he come up with new hot spots while on chemo?? Are all hot spots cancer cells? The three spots are places that he told them he had pain and they fluffed it off. Gave him muscle relaxers. They are on the back of his neck, lower deep back muscle and 5th rib. I worry that he is already weak and this will make him weaker. How long will it be before he can hope to feel better?
