As a result of my bone scan...and an xray that reveal a small lung nodule (10mm) prior to surgery, I had my followup CT scan, xray and blood work again. Great news...things unchanged after 4 months. The significance is that the volumn doubling time (VDT) for lung cancer is around six months, so with no change...Woo Hoo. Thats the good news, but the bone thing still remains questionable they say. CT scan shows activity and blood test confirm...but no idea why. The path from surgery doesn't indicate the bone activity is from the PCa and with no change in the lung nodule, probably not Lung cancer either. So while that is still unknown and I will have another followup again every three months for the next year or so...heck no big deal at this point. Getting past that first 4 month mark was a very big relief for us. Now Christmas won't be put on hold anymore waiting on lab and test results.
Things are finally getting back to normal now and I know most folks go through that fear waiting on PSA results after surgery...you can imagine waiting for test results on two fronts. But all is good now and I just wanted to share with everyone this morning...because boy do I feel lucky today and I am on top of the world right now and celebrating with everyone.
Thanks guys and gals.
