Hugs to you, Leslie, and prayers too. I know it takes some time to process it- I'm sorry to hear the biopsy was positive. Doesn't mean the end of the world- there are still several options for you to deal with this.

Take care-

So sorry to hear that. Yes, it takes a while to process.

I have had solitary lung mets three times so if there is any experience I can usefully share -- when you are ready - please let me know. Of course others on this board also have experiences.....

Thinking of you --

This is when you say “Ok cancer, you had me a little POed with your crap before, but now you got me damn mad. I be going to kick your *** along with the horse you rode in on.”

My prayers are with you darlin. (Yeah I do that to) Somehow I don’t think you will need them. You can handle this bump. Trust your gut feel.

The first tractor I ever drove was a MF 35 we got when I was 12.

and it occurred to me today that I was living a country western song "the hubby came down with the flu...the dog broke her jaw... the windshield got cracked by a rock from a semi....on the highway...and then they told me I have the Big C....and we don't got our Christmas tree...." Though am not going to win any Grammy for my country western songs, been trying hard to keep laughing. I will let you know when the plan gets sorted out. Right now grateful for my medical and support team (which INCLUDES YOU GUYS!) who are taking good care of me.

love, Leslie

@Leslie: that sucks that your biopsy came back positive...I'm so sorry. But I have faith in you and I know you are strong!!! The holidays are coming up, you are going to be a present to your loved ones and show them that you'll be there present for the next 10-20 Christmases...or, if they want to get rid of you, tell them they can't! :) Good luck and I will definitely want to hear about you and what you decided.
All the best to you,

You are smart to use humour dealing with this. Our Christmas tree just went up tonight. When I was growing up, sometimes we didn't get it until Christmas Eve - it would be ~ $1.00! Now it's a little more. Take good care, Leslie, I am thinking of you.

Leslie, you're gonna be okay, I just know it.
You got some bad news, yet you just put a smile
on my face with your country song. : )
Sending strength and positive vibes your way!

Sorry to hear about your biopsy, Leslie. I'm not sure, but I must have missed some previous posts, so I'm not sure where you were at before this biopsy. Were you NED and this was a routine scan or something and they found a spot on your lung? Or is this a new spot amongst others?

Hehe... I don't want to go giving advice or anything without knowing what's going on, but I think what the others have indicated above... there's no need to panic because of this biopsy. Easier said than done, I know. I'm a great one for telling people to take deep breaths and no need to panic, etc., then I go and get the results that my chemo seems to have stopped working and a couple of growths in my lungs have started growing even with the chemo. So do I take a deep breath or two and say, "Soldier on!"?? NOOOOOO! I panic... "The sky is falling, the sky is falling! OMG! This might be it... this might be the end!!" Uh, hello?? Nowhere did anyone indicate this was the end and my oncologist is not concerned, she just says she thinks it would be best if we change chemos, but yes, she thinks it would be a good idea that I have a break between chemos. She said an 8 week break should be fine... if I wanted a longer one, that would be ok too, although if I wanted 6 months or longer, she would think we are playing with danger then. But 8 weeks to rest, get over Christmas, get a port inserted... and away we go. A plan... we have a plan. And that's the important thing... having a plan.

Sooooo, advice... take a deep breath. Crack a couple of jokes. And work it out with your oncologist what your plan will be.

If it is a solitary nodule in your lung, depending on where in the lung it is, you might want to ask your oncologist if you would be eligible for an RFA (radio frequency ablation) procedure. Those are the most amazing procedures... you go in, have it done (sometimes with a general anesthetic but depending on where in the lung it is, sometimes you just need sedation) and you are home the same day. No pain, no fuss, no muss... and the little bugger gets zapped so that all that is left is scar tissue... which over the next year will end up being absorbed.

Oh darn it... there I went offering an opinion/advice without having a clue what is going on. Ignore my babbling but know that I'm thinking of you :)
