Darci Posted November 30, 2005 Share Posted November 30, 2005 I am baffled - before my FIL started chemo, I went to the onc appointment with them. The onc was not recommending radiation at all. I asked why not, and he had a reasonable explanation, which I ran by all of you and it made sense. We talked about whether my FIL should talk to the radiology people anyway, just to get their take - onc said by all means talk to them, but my FIL said no, he just wanted to get started with the chemo. Talked to my MIL today, and my FIL was having his third chemo treatment. She said that the onc said he wanted FIL to meet with the radiology people - why would he be thinking radiation was necessary now? We haven't had any scans or anything, and as far as we know, he doesn't have a tumor anywhere else - they removed the part of his lung with the tumor. I called the oncs office, and of course they won't talk to me - in fact, they don't even have authorization to speak to any of the kids, so hopefully we can get them to rectify that. Any thoughts? Maybe my MIL just got what he said messed up? Maybe he was talking about him going to radiology for the scans after chemo treatment was over?
