    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    Will see the oncologist for the first time this coming Wed. I vacillate between thinking I can beat this and not. Based on the PET scan report, the cancer shows some involvement with the lymph nodes (no further info) and possibly the tailbone. Have COPD with pulmonary function test below the standard required for surgery.
