angelofcharlie20 Posted September 17, 2006 Share Posted September 17, 2006 Hi All, My Family and I had a family meeting yesterday and the doctor said that he's been continuing to have a very high white blood cell count due to parts of the tumor breaking off and entering the blood stream. As a result, the white blood cells are attacking it like an infection. The doctor said that he had consulted with the surgeons, Beth Israel's oncologists and my Father's own medical onc and all seem to be in agreement that this is rapid disease progression and the goal now is to aim for quality of life instead of quantity. My Mother had called and asked me to post something to see if there was anyone who knew of any treatment options left even though the docs said that there was nothing else. I feel very pressured by my Mother's request. I feel like if I do not find anymore treatment options than it would some how be my fault even though I know it is not true. Does anyone know of anyone who was very advanced in the disease but still someone managed to work a miracle? Thanks a bundle, Shirley Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
