Re: OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Work builds up while he is gone because he is the backbone of his company. Tuesday was awful because he returned to learn that a number of people dropped the ball when he was away - and it was only for one day! My husband's heart rate is averaging 69 at rest. I guess that's ok? He's still on a bunch...

Re: OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Thanks for the well wishes. It was nice to have a moment of peace and quiet. Got back yesterday to a terrible day. It was back to the grind with lots of stress from his company. We need a vacation to rest from our mini (two nights) vacation!

OFF TOPIC - HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Just popping in to say that I hope everyone has as great a weekend as possible! My husband and I married on Columbus Day weekend 2015 and went to a cabin in the mountains for our honeymoon. Every anniversary, we return. This weekend will be a well-earned couple days of relaxation after a very arduou...

Re: New stomach primary

Sorry to hear about this, LB10. It's awful that it took so long to find out that there was this going on. Prayers sent your way.

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

Thanks, ~WorriedDaughter~ My husband reached out to his surgeon friend about the report. He said in 99.999999999999% of the time, these nodules are nothing but benign spots. I hope we get good results when he gets a local Chest CT done sometime in October. I'll post again when we learn more! *Now ba...

Re: All Lung Nodule Experiences

I would think that the fact that the larger nodules are shrinking is a good sign. Shrinkage = good in all cases of cancerous/suspicious masses. It's a good thing that he is responding to the chemo especially after just one cycle, too.

Re: Cancer Again: Not Colon?

Thanks for the reply, missmolly. So sorry to hear about your dad. I think I understand this now. There are these two ways of investigating the lung nodules for whether they are mets from the colon cancer or are new primary lung tumors. You describe them very well. My husband's colon tumors (assuming...

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

Ok, so when I broke the news to my husband this afternoon about yesterday - the news, the information, my reaction, my further research, my calming down, etc - he was absolutely livid that his MGH oncologist had not said anything to him. I prefaced the discussion with, "Did Dr. Zhu discuss the ...

Re: Cancer Again: Not Colon?

Ok, so if I understand this correctly -- the same mutations that are found in the colon specimen would appear in the lung specimen if it's a colon met, but would not (i.e. would be different mutation) if it was a separate lung cancer?

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

That makes sense, now that I have read many posts here about CTs finding lung nodules, including your stories, lovelife789. I wish I had known about the finding otherwise I would not have been so adamant about MRI although that's indeed what he needs for liver surveillance. I had no idea that doc ha...

Re: Finally....some really great news!!!

I just heard from the oncologist's assistant who informed me that an order had been put in for an MRI AND Chest CT. This is news to me. When I spoke with the scheduler to schedule the November MRI, I had no idea. Only an MRI has been scheduled. This is soooo frustrating!
