Here we go again.......

Monday, June 13, 2016

At my regular 3 month oncology appt last week the doc felt something near my liver that caused pain. She ordered at CT scan of my lungs, liver area and pelvis.
Today we met for the results.

Good news is the area that had the pain and caused the CT scan to be done is nothing. WooHoo!

Bad news is:

1. I have emphysema.
2. There are a number of spots in both lungs with irregular borders.
3. There is what they believe is a lymph node in the chest that is nearly double in size.
4. There is something attached to my left ovary.

They are going to do an internal ultrasound on my ovaries tomorrow.
Soon they will do a biposy of one or more of those lung spots and perhaps the lymph node.
And they will be doing a PET scan of the same region that the CT scan covered.

She can not give me a diagnosis at this time but explained to me that it can be metastatic breast cancer showing in the lungs.
She said that is stage four because it is not in the breast that previously had the cancer.
Although she couldn't rule out some type of viral infection in the lung.

So, as I said, here we go again........No drama, no regrets.

I have many SparkPeople friends that help me through my life every day. What a joy to look forward to interacting with these people every day. Good and bad, fat and thin, mad or happy we are in 'it' together.
These are the friends I know they will continue to stand by me and not call for details every day or expect me to cry and rage because of a supposed injustice or tell me I'm foolish to take whatever course of treatment I choose.

    It is what it is and you don't know what that is yet. But, you will and then can decide what you want to do about it. I don't think anyone knows until they are at that point. I hope the test results yield some good choices. Prayers for some good results tomorrow. Your choices from there are YOUR choices. Hugs.

    Hugs and prayers going your way Cat. Whatever the test results are the decisions are all yours to make and no one should suggest what you should or should not do. You are a strong woman and will take the news in stride, however, when you feel the need to talk, rant or whatever you need to do to get through this, remember we at SP are here for you.
