My scan today was not what I had planned for. Though I'm still going to stay on the Tarceva, the report showed disease progression with significant increase in the size of the left lower lobe nodules (which has caused volume loss and fibrosis). They've identified 36 nodules in my lungs and the cancer is showing up attached to my Plura which may be the reason I've had such a backache lately. Some of the other nodules are slightly larger and denser but there are no new nodules so apparently I've had all those in there for some time now.
I'm not thrilled with the results, but it is what it is. My positive attitude has not changed so I will continue to fight, but I have a feeling my anxiety level will be higher than ever. I've had a rough couple of days so I think I'm going to curl up on the couch and try to relax. My Ricky will be home from work soon and I think wrapping my arms around him is exactly the medicine I need.
Enjoy your evening-
