Just got back from the MedOnc and the results of my 1 yr post treatment CT was less than stellar. It seems that a ground glass nodule, that has been present in all of my scans, has increased in size by a millimeter since the last scan three months ago. Now he could not have been more reassuring that it is probably due to me having the flu and may have aspirated but he is concerned enough to order a PET. From my perspective I agree with him. The plan is if it comes back a 1-4 we can not worry about it at all. if it comes back in the 4-6 range we can watch it closely. Anything hotter and it needs to come out.
So, while I'm a member of the "don't borrow tomorrow's troubles today" club, I can't say I'm not rattled.
Stay safe and hug your family every day.
