Just got back from spending all day in Knoxville, TN. Had appointment with oncologist for 10:15 am. We arrived at 8:45 am. But we just didn't want to be late.
We saw the nurse and then the doctor. I liked them both very much. This visit was just so they could get the history and set up a biopsy.
The biopsy is now scheduled for this Friday, August 16 at 8:30 am. The follow up visit to the doctor will be Friday, August 23, at 11:15 am. At that time he will give us a better idea of what we are facing and how he plans to treat it.
The doctor's office asked me to pick up the CD/DVD of my CT scan and PET scan that were done in July. They said if I picked them up we would have them in time for the biopsy. They can then compare that scan with the scan they will be doing while they biopsy the collarbone and the lymph nodes. No biopsy of the lungs is scheduled at this time.
I am just so glad that it is started. It will be almost 2 weeks before we have any more real news but at least we are on the way.
Love to all,
A very relieved
