Good news!

My most recent CT scan shows stable disease, so I am continuing on with the Temodar. The questionable nodes all stayed the same size, and my pneumothoraces (collapsed lungs) have improved a bit on both sides. The test did pick up a tiny (3 mm) nodule in the upper portion of my left lung. It is possible that this nodule is a benign after-effect of some mild respiratory disease. It could also be some sort of artifact or shadow caused by the scan equipment itself. It could also be metastasis. Sarcoma mets can show up anywhere in the lung, of course, but they tend to appear first in the lower portion, so I'm going to choose to be optimistic about this spot until we can get a better read on things in the next study. I haven't read the report or talked in detail with Dr. S yet, but I'm quite relieved.
