Well, I had a repeat CT scan today and the lesion is unchanged.  I think the doctor had hoped that it would be smaller, hence not a tumor but probably an infection or some other annoyance. So we proceded to schedule the lung needle biopsy at Sloan Kettering, but they can't do it until July 26! UGH! My doctor here in NJ said it is a very tricky procedure made much more difficult by my implants. My doctor at Sloan Kettering agreed that it can be very tricky and would prefer I do it there. I guess the two biggest concerns are a possible collapsed lung or a deflated implant! So the waiting continues..... L&H, Frayda

Frayda,
 
How hard to be going through this now.  Please know I am praying that all will go well with your biopsy and that you will get B9 answers. The waiting is always just plain hard, but I agree that you are so smart to go where they will give you the best care.  Stressful with all your sister is going through too.
