See you there :)

I joined GRACE as a caregiver for my husband who had a Pancoast tumor, NSCLC stage III in 2009. He had curative chemo/rads then it was believed he had a recurrence in the spine/oligometastasis that was radiated. He's 10 years out from treatment.

Information everyone should have :)

HELP - PET/SCAN Result (is it cancer?)

Hello - I am scheduled for mitral value repair surgery in July and my cardiac surgeon ordered a neck-waist CT-Scan as part of pre-surgery evaluation. The CT-Scan showed enlarged hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes. My surgeon passed me on to pulmonologist who suggested a PET Scan, which was conducted today. I just got the results and did some online research myself, but am very anxious. I am meeting the pulmonologist Tuesday (5 days) but am very anxious and would love to know a bit more about the results beforehand.
