norme Posted July 16, 2003 Share Posted July 16, 2003 HI EVERYONE, MY HUSBAND BUDDY HAD SCANS YESTERDAY OF THE BRAIN AND CHEST AREA. THE BRAIN AREA SHOWS NO SIGN OF THE THREE METS THAT WERE THERE PREVIOUSLY. EVIDENTLY THE WHOLE HEAD RADIATION WORKED. BAD NEWS, THE RADIATION FOR THE CHEST AREA SHOWED CANCER IN THE RIB AREA HAS NOT CHANGED. NO BETTER BUT NO WORSE. REAL BAD NEWS AND NEED ALL OF YOUR HELP. METS TO LIVER. DR SUGGESTS ONE OF TWO THINGS. SEE THE CHEMO ONCOLOGIST AGAIN AND SEE WHAT HE THINKS AT THIS POINT OR SAY ENOUGH IS ENOUGH AND TALK WITH HOSPICE IF THE CHEMO DR THINKS IT HAS GONE TO FAR... AFTER GETTING MY BREATH AND THE TEARS TO STOP, I TOLD HIM I DON'T THINK THAT THE HOSPICE TIME IS RIGHT NOW. I DO KNOW THAT HOSPICE CAN COME IN AND HELP A LITTLE BUT I AM NOT READY TO GO THAT ROUTE FOR HIM. WE WILL CALL THE CHEMO DR AND TALK WITH HIM AND SEE WHAT HE HAS TO SAY. I NEED ALL OF YOU TO TELL ME WHAT YOU KNOW ABOUT METS TO THE LIVER AND WHAT CHEMO MEDICINES SEEMS TO BE WORKING GOOD FOR IT BEFORE WE GO SEE HIM. A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE IS BETTER THEN NONE AT THIS POINT. PLEASE KEEP MY BUDDY IN YOUR PRAYER TONIGHT.....THE TEARS ARE FLOWING AGAIN, BOY THIS IS HORRIBLE. STRANGE THING IS HE IS FEELING A LITTLE BETTER AND STILL DOING HIS WALKING. FIGURE THAT.....
