Had biopsy of biggest pulmonary node. It is metastatis from rectal cancer. My oncologist feels IMRT is not an option because there are too many that are spread too far apart. I have at least 6 nodules...the biggest one 8.5 mm, the smallest two, too small to be measured. Not to mention the microscopic ones that haven't even shown up yet. For the same reason surgery is not an option either. He wants me on the IFL regime with avastin. Does this all make sense to those of you who have been through this? As many of you have said yourselves, my husband and i are devastated. We'll get through this, but it sure don't look like it's gonna be easy!
