No so good news

I've been short of breath lately, figured it was a bad cold.  Urgent Care said sinsitits on Sunday - still I was short of breath, went to PCP today, chest X-ray shows fluid on the lung and possibly something in the lung.  CT this afternoon and a promise of a phone call.  If it isn't good news I guess it is back on the chemicals and a tap.  This cancer never seems to cut us a break.  I'll keep you posted            Marie

Hi Marie,

Just wanted to send you my best wishes.  I'm really hoping and praying this is nothing but a minor set-back that something simple can take care of.  You're right...this thing is always lurking around somewhere, and even when it is something simple, you always wonder if it's the cancer getting ready to pounce.  Please do let us know what you find out.

Got the phone call, it is not good.  Tomorrow I'll hear about getting it tapped and hopefully discuss treatment.  From everything I learned here, I am betting on Gemzar.  Thank you all for all your good wishes.  It is crappy to have cancer

Marie, I am so sorry.  But, I felt so much better once they removed the fluid from my lungs.  It is a little scary, but it wasn't real painful.  Only, when they took the needle out and the lung started to expand, I couldn't breath and it scared me.  But, the nurses were right there and got me calmed down and in just seconds it was okay.  Good luck..  Yvonne

Marie,
How very upsetting for this to happen. Please keep up your strength (emotional and physical)--you have always been one of such great support and strength to everyone else on this forum. Know that healing wishes are coming up from Long Island by way of Northerly Winds  :)

Good thoughts and prayers,
Helen

Stay warm and toasty.

Thank you all for good thoughts. See the Dr tomorrow who will do the tap, he is going to do a biopsy on Friday.  I don't see my Gyn/Onc until after Christmas.
