Throat Blog — Breathing Easier


That isn’t actually entirely true, but this post is about my lungs…in as far as my lungs go, it is very true. I got the CT results from this week’s scan, today, and the news is very good. 8 months ago I had 9 or 10 nodules, all 5-15 mm and growing. As of this week, there are only 6 detectable nodules, and 5 of the remaining have significantly reduced in size:

  • 13 mm -> 3 mm
  • 14 mm -> 5 mm
  • 14 mm –> 5 mm
  • 15 mm –> 5 mm
  • 5 mm –> 1 mm

The one remaining has gone from 10 x 10 mm to 16 x 13 mm. Still very small and not growing fast (from what I’ve read, unchecked cancer nodules like this will double in size every 3 months).

So, even though none of these nodules ever affected my breathing, I am breathing much easier, knowing that the chemo drug I am on is working.

Now, if I can just get my throat situation settled, I can look forward to 100% easy breathing.
