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.

Hi there, I don’t think you mentioned it but how is your CEA? Is that hinting that something is going on? You said MSK confirmed disease. Based on shape, appearance?

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 going to be getting new scans in august.

Well, it's now been 16 months since my husband's last Folfiri + Avastin cycle, and his lungs are still looking good: "Lungs, Pleura and Airways: Scattered calcified granulomata again noted unchanged. No new nodules identified". I hope yours disappear without treatment, prayingforccr, or that they're not mets in the first place, but if they are - know that systemic chemo can control them!

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 hoping that what was picked up was treatment results from the hbot (atelectasis/mucous plugs/granuloma).

If it isn’t, I don’t think I’ll be around long :(

I am doing the Tippens Protocol in the interim and hoping for the best.

Scans in august.
