1. The 19 x 18 mm right lower lobe pulmonary nodule is abnormally metabolically active and is malignant until proven otherwise. (hense the lung biopsy later this morning) There is evidence for metastases to the 16 mm right subcarnial lymph node, lower right hilar, upper left hilar lymph nodes.
2. The small pulmonary nodules seen on ct scan as well as the small anterior mediastinum lymph nodes do not demonstrate abnormal metabolic activity. The T10 sclerotic lesion also does not demonstrate abnormal metabolic activity.
3. Residual apparent post operative changes involving the left breast (new boob)
I found a lot of type o's on this report also on the full summary (Thanks Mary!) they even had my cancer marked for the wrong boob....I wil get to the bottom of this before they do anything more than this lung biopsy today....page one of my pathology report contradicts some things on the second page summary.
I will be having my C/T Cat Scan guided needle biopsy on my right lung(say that 3 times fast! lol) this morning....I have to be at the Hosptal by 9:30 a.m. for an 11:00 a.m test....I will be given a "twilight" drug for the procedure and the test itself should only be about an hour long but I have to stay there for 4 hours after the test is finished to make sure that there hasn't been any bleeding or air entering or leaving the site of the biospy area...I had no problem with the needle biopsy of my breast last summer but the thought of a needle entering my lung makes me wanna say "POP!" enter warped sense of humor giggle here!lol
I should know what we are dealing with exactly by late afternoon Monday...I have a feeling it will surgery first, then some more rounds of chemo and radiation this time...at least that is what my intuition is screaming in my ear for the last couple of days...whatever it is....I'm ready for it!
I won round one, I'll win round 2.....I'm not going anywhere just yet! Reason one, Jim and the kids of course....reason two.....I'm finally getting my body back PLUS new and improved, perkier boobs and I want to show it all off this summer! MY BAD!!!! lol lol lol
