Darci Posted September 13, 2005 Share Posted September 13, 2005 Well, my FIL seems to be recovering quite well from his surgery. He has both chest tubes out, is off of oxygen, is moving around well. Aside from little appetite, and general being sick of being in the hospital he is doing great. The plan is that he will be released tomorrow. They told us yesterday that the cancer he has is adenocarcinoma. Today they called and said that they are definitely going to do about 4-6 weeks of chemo/radiation. 5 days of rad, then 3 days chemo the next week. No news yet of what meds they are using. Apparently there was cancer in most of the lymph nodes they tested. My FIL said that they would probably start these treatments almost as soon as he is home, but I thought that they would give a little more time for him to recover from surgery? Maybe he misunderstood, or misinterpreted what they said. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
