I have written in a couple of times about my mother who was diagnosed with SCLC in June '05. She had tumors in her left lung, lymph nodes, liver, spine and hip. After radiation and chemo, scans showed no signs of the cancer when they were done at the end of December '05. During the last couple of weeks she has started having symptoms like she had when she was first diagnosed -- strained breathing (even wearing her oxygen) and back pain where the tumor was in her spine. She had an MRI last week and the dr. called today and said that everything looked fine. She feels rotten though. Could the cancer still be there and the MRI did not detect it? I am not sure what to do now. Should we get a second opinion? Has anyone else had this situation? Thanks for any advice that you may have!
