Appointment today with Dr Mark Orringer. He is not convinced that all of the lymph nodes that lit up are cancer.He saidhe has never seen anything like this. The good news is they didnt wipe the surgery date off the calendar. Larry will have to have biopsy of trachea. If it is cancer no surgery, the nodes in the lungs are inoperable. What is puzzling to him is the main tumor responded significantly, and the nodes are mirrored to each other across the chest. So we wait again...
