CyberKnife, Miami


Recommended Posts

I sure wish everything went as fast as this. I sent Ken's scans and reports to the CyberKnife Center in Miami on Monday and on Tues. a Dr. called me. We are going there next Tues. The Dr. thought he was a good candidate, that they can ablate all his tumors. He wants him to see a oncologist surgeon there to rule out surgery on the lung tumors.

Tomorrow he is getting his last chemo at Moffitt for this cycle. On Feb. 28th they will do scans. If we decide to do the CK we will have to withdraw from the study he is in. However, the liver tumor did not respond after the first 2 cycles and I think if it did not respond this time they were going to recommend something else anyway. They still have some questions as to whether the tumor in his liver is a primary or a mets.

It is so hard to wait for scans and not know in the meantime if the chemo is working. I know everyone here knows all about that. I am wondering if new tumors can just appear while you are having chemo? Does that happen? I am worried that the scans might show something new, but then I think surely not while he is actively on chemo, especially this early. The Dr. at CK said he should continue chemo so new tumors did not develop.

I will let everyone know how it goes at the CK center. I have a lot of questions for them, hopefully we will get some really good answers. Thanks everyone, the info and support from this board is priceless.
