HI again, this is my second post I joined yesterday hoping for some support with my recent diagnosis.
I had my 3 month screens, CT lung, abdo, pelvis recently . plus MRI pelvis, plus full body bone scan. I am booked to have consult with my Oncologist tomorrow via phone re; COVIN-19 for the results.
I requested copy of tests results from my GP surgery a few days ago..Thinking they were going to give me the previous ones taken a few months ago which I had got the results of but they gave me the most recent.. I always got a hard copy to place in my file as I have been doing for past few years following diagnosis of uterine carcinosarcoma, MMMT Dec 2017.
It was a shock to read the report and maybe I shouldn't have prior to consult with my Oncologist.
It stated I have metastasis in both my lungs? I haven't been able to sleep much since and wondering what this means?? When I was first diagnosed with cancer few years ago I was told if this cancer returns I have no hope as it is an aggressive invasive tumor and will be difficult to treat.. It is like waiting for a death sentence these past few days and is another day to wait for My Oncologist to ring me which seems like eternity. Every minute of the day I am becoming more anxious..
Thank you for your reply full of hope..
I had the phone consult with my Oncologist today. She gave me the results of my scans.
It is as you say, the nodules in my lungs are very small and slow growing. The Oncologist recommends I have a PET scan in 3 months. She does not identify them as metastasis yet and can only be diagnosed with a lung biopsy which I can have now as they are big enough. I chose to wait to have the PET scan in 3 months.
I am now feeling hopeful and less anxious.
Thanks for your reply.
I am going ok, still in pain while weight bearing. Waiting on surgery.
Found out today it will be in mid July. I will keep you posted.
Thanks for your concerns.
