Mark and I met with Dr. Campbell today to go over my CAT scan of almost 2 weeks ago. After waiting 2 hours to see him and then going through all kinds of statistics and measurements the upshot is: stay the course. CAT scans measure in 1/4 inch intervals and the nodules we measure are in millimeters, so room for error, speculation, and interpretation abounds. We agree heartily with Dr. Campbell’s assessment that the nodules in my lungs are essentially stable. I won’t try to chart and graph all the measurements we went through with Dr. Campbell. He and Mark share a great affection for white boards.
I did get my way with having a week off from treatment this week to, quite literally, catch my breath–though Dr. Campbell quipped that he thinks I must negotiate prices for used cars on the weekends.
