We received this news on our return from vacation on Wednesday Dec 12th 2012.
Well it is official, the cancer is back.
A little over 17 months ago our eldest daughter had an operation to remove the lower lobe of her lung due to cancer. Doctors said everything went well and she would recover. That did not happen, Nicole had a hard time and never bounced back to where she had been. She was never able to return to work and she was always breathless, tired, and not right.
All the test came back clean and clear so we did not know what was wrong. Nicole was sent to see many different doctors. Allergist, a breathing specialist, rehab to learn to breath, just on and on. But just last week another scan was done and it has shown two marks on the next level of her lung, and it is cancer. She also has 7 lymph nodes that are not right. Doctor told her if the cancer is in her lymph system there is nothing that can be done.
Nicole see's another specialist this coming week, he most likely will want to do another biopsy and from that, we will have our answers.
