My mom just called with her CT scan results. She said, “The results came back 95% good, but there are some questionable areas.” She said there is nothing showing in the lung, but a couple of lymph nodes have increased in size.
Interval increase lymph nodes right supraclavicular region and mediastinum posterior to the trachea of concern for metastatic involvement.
The report says to correlate a PET as needed and that the right-sided lymph nodes may be clinically palpable and could potentially be biopsied.
My mom says they will determine what to do next week when her doctor is back in the office. They could do the PET, a biopsy or just wait another four weeks to see if the lymph nodes continue to grow. So, another week of waiting, wondering and trying to focus on that 95% goodness – not that 5% pure monster madness.
