First, I’m so sorry you find yourself here but you’ll find good information and lots of support. I’m not sure I will be much help with your question however. My mets showed up as pleural effusion and now there is thickening of the pleural lining indicative further growth of the cancer. I’m not clear on the distinction between that and the chest wall. If they are suggesting surgery perhaps it is quite localized? I have been treated with chemo and/or hormone treatments only. I don’t believe radiation is an option in most cases where the pleura is involved.
There are some additional threads with ladies potentially closer to your diagnosis (look at lung mets) but none of them are very active.
I have been following the liver mets thread Ioana (like to follow Z) and did see the post you are referring to. I did have a bit of trouble following it as it seems to be very early days but fabulous if some cutting edge work was closer to home.
Great tree Di. I love Christmas but no tree for us this year as we are still mired in renovations. Mind you, I have been joking that I can simply stand in the corner and twinkle. Six CT scans, two bone scan and numerous X-rays in the last year - I’m sure I must glow in the dark by now.
Over half way through the work week thank goodness. It’s a bit of a slog at the moment....
Sending virtual hugs to all.
