bobby22 Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 Recently, my dad had a PET scan that showed metastates to the bone. He's been having trouble breathing and terrible bone pain. He had lung cancer about three years ago and prostate cancer about five years ago. Both were treated: lobectomy and prostatectomy. Currently, we won't have a definitive diagnosis until he has a biopsy, which will be perfomed in a few days but it looks like metastatic lung cancer to the bone. I say this because his most recent PSA was undetectable and he has trouble breathing. What amazes me is that his PET scan showed very obvious bone mets and he was/is in a great deal of pain and yet they won't treat him until he has the biopsy and definitive diagnosis. What can we expect? What is his prognosis? What should we do? HELP! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
