Lee started Treatments


Recommended Posts

Thrilled the hurricane bypassed Baytown. NOw on the treatment. dad had his 3rd chemo treatment and all his blood work came back good. He had Carbo platin first. Then Taxol and then today pamidonate. I have never heard of this last drug. Has anyone here been one it or know about it?

Next week he starts radiation.

I had been hopeful about possible resection but Dad says he has tumors in both lungs. I guess inoperable means inoperable.....?????

Hoping this treament melts the cancer away.

Peace to all in pain and strength to defeat this beast.

Eppie: I think pamidonate is for bone mets. I have read that one should not do tooth extractions when using bisphosphonates and pamidonate is a bisphosphonate. Here is a link that talks about possible bone loss as a possible side effect of using bisphosphonates. Pamidonate is not specifically mentioned, but it is a bisphosphonate.
