Re: Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

Thank you, Claudine. It’s hard for me to not fear the worst, but I do think it unusual to go from ZERO to NINE nodules in all lobes of the lung in a matter of five months. The variable was the hyperbaric oxygen therapy I began in december and continued up until the scan, so I am really, really hopin...

Re: Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

CEA is 2.6. Both mskcc and jupiter medical indicated suspected metastasis because of history of rectal cancer and how they reflected the contrast, but they are currently too small to biopsy. So, not 100%. I’m hoping they are a bunch of atelectasis or mucus plugs from hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I’m g...

The scans were done and read at sloan kettering.

I don’t see the name, make, model of the machine they used.

The scans in may were done at jupiter medical center.

Re: Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

“ New 0.2 cm nodule more caudally in the left lower lobe, probable mucous plugging.“

That’s the only allusion to lung nodes in the november scan.

If you don't mind telling us, did the treatment seem to help? So many people have nasty effects from radiation, but this is the first time I've seen this therapy mentioned.


The hyperbaric oxygen therapy helped A LOT, as did acupuncture.

Re: Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I did hbot 2 hours a day, five days a week. Why? If it was to treat some lung infection, that itself could have caused the lung nodules. I did the hbot to try and heal radiation injuries (internal ulcers) and proctitis in my rectum. The treatment wasn’t lung related, but ...

Hi, Claudine.

But he was able to get rid of them with FOLFIRI/Avastin?

I figure the bullets left in my gun are 1) Tippens protocol 2) FOLFIRI/Avastin 3) YAG surgery in Germany

Keep us posted!


Do you think it unusual to go from 0 to 9 lung nodules in 6 months with no other signs of disease?

Re: Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

My oncologist and the radiologist didn’t know that I had done the hbot.

I guess I was just hoping that the fact that I went from 0 to 9 in such a short period of time would be unusual :(

And that maybe what was picked up on the ct scan are some sort of treatment effect from the hbot.

Unusual To Go From Zero To Nine Lung Nodules In 6 Months?

So..........I had a ct scan in november which was clear. I had a ct scan three weeks ago which indicated NINE small (3-6mm) lung nodules which are currently too small to treat or biopsy. So, I got to thinking. What was different from November until May? Hyperbaric oxygen therapy. I did hbot 2 hours ...

Re: Care at a elite cancer center without traveling to it ?

My primary care is at msk, but I have had to go in person several times.

They work with my local oncologist to help me.

Re: Has anyone taken a break from chemo in between their adjuvant chemo?

I BARELY made it through 8 rounds of FOLFOX.

I don’t know that I could have done another.

I still have lingering neuropathy in my hands and feet which has been helped by acupuncture.

Re: Lung Metastisis Testing

Unfortunately, I had 9 small (3-6mm) nodules appear on a ct scan where there had been none 6 months prior. They are assumed to be metastasis of rectal cancer :( My oncologist and I have decided to wait 90 days to do a new scan to see if theyve grown as they are too small to biopsy. I have been doing...

Re: Lung nodules and other lung "thingies"

I don't believe I'm on the list either but qualify. Here's the lung part of the story so far for those interested: I had a 6mm spot show up in my lung at the same time as a spot in my liver; I had the liver met resected first and the follow up scan showed the lung nodule shrank to 3mm. Thinking tha...
