Feeling uncertain... Lung mets!
Hi, I've been reading for a while and finally plucked up the courage to post.
I've found it really hard to find threads that link to just lung mets, as many people seem to have liver mets or both. I finished 6 months of 'mopup' chemo, only to find on the follow up scan that 2 mets have appeared ( one in each lower lung) and 2 lymph nodes in medisternum (? Spelling!!) are also enlarged. I have had 3 months Folfiri which has reduced all areas and will continue for next 3 months, then reassess. I was initially told inoperable because it's on both lungs, but latest letter from consult has hinted surgery may be possible. I'm most concerned about the lymph nodes as although they have reduced in size, (they were actually larger than the the lung nodules) , can they be operated on? Removed? Or will the chemo 'get rid' of them? I suppose I'm looking for some positive stories to hang on to, as I've struggled with my diagnosis and need a bit of reassurance. Sorry for the ramble Px
