you are fortunate to be connected to Johns Hopkins for a second opinion. Hope that your pain has receded from your rectal resection when seated, I recently noticed when shopping on Amazon that there are memory foam coccyx cushions ... perhaps they might be helpful in your situation.  Wishing you the best tomorrow. -- Cynthia

I've dealt with lung mets for a while. Many of my smaller ones were treated using RFA (ablation) and it was a breeze. Others at the beginning were treated with Wedge Resections. Not as breezy but effective and got me where I am now...


BTW: I've been being treated at Sloan Kettering

Just had SBRT radiation for lung met...too close to blood vessel for RFA. Positive thoughts for good second opinion! ~Ann

Sounds like you're in good hands.  I had a solitary lung met 2 and a half years after my initial diagnosis/surgery/treatment.  The lung met was biopsied and removed a year ago.  I went with my doctor's advice to remove it surgically and biopsy it to see if it was a metastisis from my original rectal cancer.  It was.  I'm doing well almost a year out from the lung surgery.  Best of luck with your decision and plan.

Nothing new on second opinion so its on the chemo for the lung mets.

Thanks for the good wishes. Hopefully I will be able to come back with good news after the Folfox.

One day at a time, right?
