Hi, Everyone: Because I work for a radiology clinic, I sort of came in through the back door three weeks ago. Had a chest x-ray and then a CT -- showing malignant-appearing tumor left upper lobe, smack dab between the aorta and pulmonary artery (therefore, probably non-surgical, and definitely not able to be needle biopsied. Then had a PET scan, showing the lung nodule, with hot spot on the spleen, and a tiny one in left second rib. So... Am still seeing the pulmonologist I went to, waiting for biopsy results (should be here Monday for sure). Can't get into the oncologist until the 22nd.
Of course I have a bezillion questions, and am counting on some of you out there to feed me some information as I progress through the steps in front of me.
Thank GOD you are all here.
