Cyberknife Update

Hi All,
They had a meeting of the minds today. They are going to go ahead with the Cyberknife. They will not attempt another biopsy because of the bleeding. I have not had Avastin for 4 weeks and they thought bleeding would be minimal...if any. WRONG! So they said it would be nice to have that info but at this point and time the tumor is growing and regardless of whether it is cancer or not...it still needs to come out before it does further damage to bronchial area by Hilum. I fully agree. The 2 markers they put in may or may not stay in place. Even if both dislodge and I have NO markers...they are still doing the Cyberknife. It may take a little "good" tissue as a result but would still be very minimal compared to say...regular radiation. Again... thats doable. I cancelled my chemo today but may opt to do one more session tomorrow as I now know if I puke up a marker it ain't gonna stop nothing. They chemo is also important at this point as it has already wiped out that second tumor that lit up in the other lung and I have a few other nodules that I want gone BEFORE they lite up. I go friday and get fit for my "cradle" vest thingy. They will also do scan then to see where my markers are. Hopefully they will both still be intact....that would be best case scenario. I will post next week with another update after fridays visit.,.... Thank you all for your encouragement and prayers and the love... :)

You go girl and sounds like a plan and their wonderful minds came together. So glad that you have so many doctors that talked about what should be done. If you do the chemo tomorrow, hoping that you don't get sick and you come through it ok. Thanks for keeping us posted. Hugs and lots of prayers.

So glad to find out the Doctors have decided to go forward with the surgery. You are so strong, you will be just fine. Saying a prayer for you and the family for nothing short of a positive outcome.
