Hi all, I'm a 3 year survivor stage 3 esophageal cancer.
There has been NED during all that time. Went in for a
6 mos. CT scan follow up. Surgeon who performed my
Trans Hiatal Esophagectomy (THE) said scans looked great BUT one 7mm "spot" on lung. He sent me home told me not to worry and we'll do CT in 4 mos. He didn't appear to be exceptionally alarmed, but I am. I will have
follow up with my oncologist to discuss the CT scan, guess I'll see what his reaction is. Dr. suggest it could be nothing, i.e. scar tissue, some aspiration, etc. But he didn't rule out the dreaded "C". I know this topic has probably been beat to death, but not worry and for 4 mos.! Guess I'll just get my head in the right place and know, that "I am healthy", "I am well", and "I am cancer free". Thanks for reading.
