After the rise in my CA125, so very little, and the ground glass haze on my lung, we did a chest CT. Spoke with docs RN today and she told me the ground glass is still there, with NO change....yahoo! Do find a "few" PULMONARY NODULES" very small in size. The radiologist report shows notes -- "appears to be scarring or inflammation".
Next step -- CA125 is 3 months and then see if need more scans for lungs. If no change in size or texture or additional ones, we'll wait another 3 months for CA125 and then do the CT scan. Did ask the RN to send me a copy of scan for my files. I love to read them and feel I have a bit more control.
As my husband asked me after the news, how do you feel??? Sorta at ease as do know what I'm dealing with but need more time to get a bit more research under my belt. In the end, it is what it is, but thankfully nothing said CANCER or threw the doc to have biopsy (really can't since they are too small). This is my 4th scan since my diagnosis where some "unknown" has shown up, and with other 3, was nothing serious...hoping same with this last one. As someone's doc mentioned, as we age we have "body junk" which shows up for no reason....like left-over skin cells, which are there from the beginning or like skin tags, appear for no reason.
GOOD NEWS -- no cancer found anywhere!!!! I just celebrated 4 yrs NED yesterday and have no plans on diverting from this path. I'm a determined person to live a very long life. Tell my husband if I go before you, who will make your oatmeal every morning and do the laundry??....lol~ surely not him
Anyone have insight or experience with pulmonary lung nodules?
Thanks all you brave warriors~
