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 that maybe that was just inflammation after all we monitored it, it stayed that size for the next 2 scans then finally on the 3rd it started growing again. I immediately had a wedge resection after that. It must have slipped out because 2 scans later another spot (in the same area) plus 2 lymph nodes came up. I did FOLFIRI for 6 months and had a good response, then the decision was made to attempt another resection. Unfortunately when the surgeon got in there he found one of the lymph nodes was adhered to the nearby bronchi, so no clear margins possible and the surgery was aborted. They then sent me for radiation, which I just completed (short course, 15 rounds, IMRT I believe).
