• Adenocarcinoma with bone & liver met.

    Adenocarcinoma with bone & liver met.

    Hello all. My lung cancer has metastisized to L3 of spine and top tip of liver. I was told the targeted radiation is a piece of cake. Does anyone out believe different?

    Secondly, has anyone experienced the met to the liver? What was your experience and how did you feel. Was a new timeline given to you at this stage?

      Hello CB,

      Sorry to hear about the mets. I hope that you've been able to remain somewhat calm. I'm waiting for scan results and have had difficulty in that regard.

      I currently have one met in my liver and several spots on my spine. When I was first diagnosed, I had three spots in my brain - that is where I received my targeted radiation and I gotta say that relatively speaking, it was indeed a piece of cake. The mets went away and my brain has been clear ever since.

      The met in my liver has remain pretty much unchanged throughout my therapy. I haven't really had any noticable symptoms. It did make my blood chemistry 'funny' and kept me out of a clinical trial. They haven't discussed using targeted radiation for that yet. If it grows, I'm guessing that they will.

      I have never been given a timeline. This disease and response to treatment varies so much person-to-person that it's all a XXX shoot. I figure that God'll keep me around as long as I'm necessary.

      Thanks RuthAnne. I just love UR last sentence. How long have u had the liver met & how big is it? I guess I do feel like I've been knocked back a few steps with this development. But I also know I've got to keep on trucking.
