The MO seems to be on the same page as the thoracic surgeon. We are going to get another scan in November and take it from there. She said if this is cancer in my lungs she will do nothing different. Meaning continue Arimidex. She said if this is cancer then this drug is keeping the nodules at bay. As for the new growth on the xray that was taken while I was in the hospital she wants to see what the latest films show. I had a new xray done this week and will be seeing the pulmonologist next week. So I remain in limbo but feel optimistic .
I was asked about pain and about SE's....I told her about the usual crap Arimidex causes and also about pain in my hip. I've had what I thought to be a pulled muscle in my right hip...same side as BC....it's been nagging pain for 3 weeks now. Putting any weight on it hurts me badly. Just lying down doing nothing brings the same pain. My upper thigh ...the bone...bothers me too. She did a quick exam and told me to go get an xray of the hip. I go back to see her in a month. One of my earlier scans notes a bone island on this hip. Hmmmmm
I know where her thoughts are heading and am just trying to stay calm. This is making me dizzy!
Somehow I know everything will be fine. It has to be. I don't have time for this.
But......I do ask for more prayers. Those prayers are what keep me so positive.
