My wife Andre was diagnosed with nsclc stag IV (with brain tumour(last year and since then has had 6 ots of chemo which finished aug 2011.
after the chemo, the was only slight activity in the lung
Andrea has since had a further scan were there was a bit more activity on the lung so it has been decided to go ahead with "local booser cyberknife" which apparently goes on for 4hrs. She is a bit nervous about this and worries about silly things like will she be sedatted? will she be able to able to get up for the toliet etc ?
when i asked the doc if he thought the cyberknife will do a good job, his reply was something like "yes it will get rid of the insignificant little bugger!"
Also on the pet scan it said "Cervical issue, but not related and not a threat" the doc said oh thats nothing to worry about, but obviously we are as she feels a lump in her neck.
Would pet scan show previous damage or non cancerous problems ?
lastly she has been suffering Back pain and numbness down one side, she can put a hot cup of tea on her side and feel no pain ? would this be related ?
thanks in advance x
