    • Dear Dr. West- Like most people who've had a cancer diagnosis I go online hunting for info that, in the words of a wise friend, will "prove I'm going to live forever." This post of yours is exactly the sort of thing that gives solace at times like this, right before my two and a half year CT scan. (More)

    • I'm afraid that without being directly involved, without seeing the images or knowing the details of her case, we can't say what this represents or what to do. Her doctor(s) would need to guide any further workup. It may be helpful to get a biopsy by bronchoscopy, perhaps, or just try treating with (More)

    • Chemo doesn't particularly hinder the healing from surgery, which can take weeks to sometimes a few months. The chemo gets out of your body in less than a week, but recovering from the side effects completely can sometimes take 1-2 months. Good luck. -Dr. West (More)
