Well I had my first visit to the Macmillan Unit today. They had received the results of the molecular testing yesterday so I got an appointment today. I thought that was really good but I am disappointed how long this bit has taken. I got the official result it was cancer (which we did already know) on 18th December 2014 when I was told they needed to do the molecular testing. It is T4 N2 M1a. I did look it up but found it was quite varied depending on what causes the T4
I have my pre treatment appointment a week Thursday and presumably the chemo will start fairly quickly. I have been told I am going to get Pemetrexed and cisplatin chemo. I have a leaflet that I have yet to read. But basically I will have 4 lots of chemo over a 3 week cycle.
I did get asked if I wanted a prognosis of length, I'm not sure my husband did but I wanted some idea. Dr asked what I was thinking and I said a couple of years. Her answer was we will see what we can do. Not sure that is what I wanted to hear but if you ask you get. I am aware that it is a very flexible time scale, its not months but I wonder if she was thinking more of maybe a year.
Any thoughts on what I should be thinking and asking when I go for my pre chemo appointment?
