So I was scheduled to begin radiation on 11/18, but the week before, I reported pain in upper chest and back and some dysphagia along with a cough. A PET scan revealed a new lymphadenopathy above my clavicle. Also a suspicious mass-like growth above and adjacent to the very hypermetabolic subcarinal lymph node. Radiation and chemo are delayed now until Monday, 11/25 because they are having to reprogram the radiation therapy machine.
I'm not looking for sympathy. I'm just sharing. Hopefully I will have something better to share in the future. Something that promotes hope.
Thank you all for sharing also.
