Here's what we know... (written by Jen Kwiatek)
The PETscan results came back indicating that there
are four lower lung nodules that have cancer in them. It has spread and is now classified at Stage 4.
largest nodule is 1cm and the next largest is 8mm. The other two are
even smaller. There are two in one lung and two in the other. They could biopsy them to make sure they aren't a secondary (another type) cancer, but they run the risk of puncturing the lung. So, they
are assuming this is part of the primary breast cancer that has now spread into the lung.
They are going
to continue with the mediport surgery today at 1:30pm. Jenn will continue with the previously outlined chemotherapy on Wednesday. No plans have changed at this point.
This is not the best news, but it's also not the worst. There is
no reason to assume the chemotherapy won't kill the cancer.
Jenn will be in surgery and then on painkillers, so she will not be in the right mindset to speak via phone. If you want to talk with me or need additional information, please email or call. My information can be found below:
