Allison, I felt it was worth my time to see Dr. Loehrer. He spent at least 45 minutes with me explaining the disease, my case and future treatment. The doctors at Mayo had initially
recommended radiation. I felt very uncomfortable with this since I believe my Thymoma was a result of chest radiation I had in 1987 for Lymphoma. He agreed and said that radiation doesn’t help if the tumor is completely removed. He said it tends to recur in the lining of the lungs – so where do you radiate? Also he gave me a scan schedule which the doctors at Mayo are using. I liked him and felt peace about his plans. My Thymoma was stage 2a type b3. Praying for peace and wisdom for you. I highly recommend the Thymoma Facebook group too.
