      I had a PET/Ct scan on Monday, March 7.  Nodules in my left lung popped up on the PET scan.  I have to have lymph nodes removed from under my left arm.  A biopsy will be done.  I will know more after i see the surgeon on the 25th of this month.  I will see my oncologist again after the biopsy.

                  I'm sorry you got such bad news.  Did the nodes show up on the PET also?
