EastCoastLadi Posted June 23, 2006 Share Posted June 23, 2006 We got the results of my husbands' MRI and CT today: On the good news: My husbands' brain is empty ....all of his lesions are gone!!!!! On the not so good news: but I don't know if you would say bad, but "ah" or perhaps ? (what does that mean???? - I would ask)....after one round of chemo, he couldn't go for more chemo, platelets are very low and it's messing up his blood big time..so this stops and also even though the tumors in his liver and adrenal gland haven't changed, his tumor and nodes in his right lung have grown a slight bit.. So the oncologist and radiologist are going back and forth, radiologist wants to nuke the chest a little bit, onc. not too keen, because of the sistemic nature of small cell... But - "wifey" here --- says...hey what about gamma or cyber knife...there are 2 good hospitals in Boston, and he wouldn't have to go thru all those rounds of radiation.... The onc. think that perhaps , but where the tumor in the lung is so unstable ( it's not still....a moving target per say ), and close to the heart..he doesn't know if it could be done....so he's going to pow-wow w/ the radiologist and we're just waiting....and waiting..... Well that's it for now... Grace Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
