    Vin, you better stay on top of things , get your lazy fat ass off the couch and to the DRs.:manganr:


    Update, to the Oncologist I go tomorrow at noon.

    Be it was a long while since I was to him I had one of his nurses on the phone and was able to give a full but brief rundown on the sequence of events that brought me back to his office.

    Update when home tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear there's a little delay with that good news we're all waiting for. Stay strong, brother :thumbsup: Sounds like the doctors are being thorough in trying to rule everything out. You've got a lot of Devils praying for you... Even if that does sound a little oxymoronic :bwah: We're all here for you, bud.

    Like all the rest of us, I wish you good luck. But realistically, not much more can happen tomorrow other than ordering more tests. But I like the fact that they will be directed by an oncologist you trust.

    Hi all. Well when OB started this thread it was because I was off to a PET/CT with possible problems ahead and boy there were problems along the way.

    I walked in today and he had already reviewed my last scans, and was also up to date on everything leading up to todays visit, guess after my appt was scheduled yesterday he did his homework.

    I'm starting over it seems in the same place. The Oncologist today ordered a PET/CT scan STAT as a comparative against the one I had back in April, it's been 4 months so any changes would be able to be seen.

    Waiting on a call to know exactly when , should be early next week.



    He stated "no meat no treat" and was pointing to another lung biopsy, I told him I wasn't game as I am JUST feeling better from last Wednesdays poke in the chest and collapsed lung . But there are different types of lung cancer and without knowing what the tissue is would not know the "best" treatment.

    Soooo, in discussion if the new PET/CT scan shows something in another area they can grab some tissue from to get a idea of what type of cancer if any is present to be able to have a treatment plan ahead.

    EDIT to add, he also did lab work for Tumor markers, if reports come back HIGH, it could trigger Chemo treatment without biopsy taken.

    Back to hurry up and wait, will update as I can.

    Once again, your support here has been paramount and I can't say enough how much it's appreciated.

    Thanks for the update, Glenn, I like your doctor's style. I like smart doctors who do their homework and are clearly on your side. Sounds like you have a good one. I had wondered about the markers test too and assumed it had been done. It tends to be a nonspecific test (it can be caused by cancer in other areas) but it is a good test to use when other methods, like biopsies, are problematic.

    Again, good luck, and I am glad you are working with a good oncologist.

    ^^^ Love you guys, and gal. :manganr:


    Yes full confidence this is the man that gave me the first 13 rounds of chemo back in 07 that was instrumental in saving my life, figure will give him another crack at it. :ropeman: :devilcorn:

    Monday morning 7am arrival for a 8am PET / CT full body scan. When speaking to the DR he stated he was leaving Thursday for vacation, everyone's entitled. He wants me to phone him the day after the test to have a brief report of what he sees and to formulate a game plan.

    Guess my next update will be Tuesday after speaking with him.

    Also I have to check my appt cards, but I think this week to come will consult back with the Plastic Surgeon about the last stage of fix for my ear.

    I will be pursuance of that, unless I have bigger fires to put out post PET/CT results.
