Good Morning Everyone,
Had another CT Scan on March 16, 2017 and also took a month of chemo as I was getting sicker and sicker each time I was given the Carbo and Eposide. New results are mixed. My appointment with the Doctor is April 3, 2017.
Everything as resolved in my left lung and liver. I have had four rounds of chemo. They called this CT Scan Restaging of Lung cancer. I still have a small nodule in the lower left of my lung. They called this a precarinal Lymph node that on 12/20/2016 measured 18mm and in this scan it was 5mm. What is a precarinal lymph node?
In my liver I had tumors in sections 3,5,and 8. All that is left a small cystic lesions that were there before the cancer traveled to my liver.
Recist lesion 5 was likely a lymph node in the left major fissure. This is no longer identifiable. What is a left major fissure?
But here comes the not so good news. They say there is a blastic lesion at T7 in my spine. I have no pain. They called it a new osseous metastatic disease involving the T7 vertebral body. They spoke about a amenable to percutaneous biopsy in conjection with the thermal ablation are considerations'.
OK what is a percutaneous biopsy and what is a thermal ablation?
They have before stated I may have mestastic disease in L1, C5 and right Femur and Left hip. I disagreed because these were injury sites that in other CT Scans especially the one in Feb of 2017 were stated like this. However I am a bit worried about this, and I have had back pain all my life.
So could they be wrong again? Any help in answering my questions would help. I am still wondering even though my liver biopsy stated I had small cell and maybe lymphoma, could I have had both and now this is the lymphoma showing up?
