Guest peggyd Posted September 22, 2003 Share Posted September 22, 2003 I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted to the board. It has been a rather busy month. I was so sorry to hear the bad news from some of you and my prayers are with you all, especially those of you who have lost someone in that period of time. Mike and I DID get to take the trip on the train to Nevada and it was both beautiful and calming to both of us. When we came back, Mike got the results of his PET scan. The onc is concerned about the site on his spine and the fact that the mass in his lungs seems to have grown. So rather than do radiation as she had thought, she is going to put him on six treatments of chemo, taxotere, and on decadron. Looking up these two medications scares me to death! This new regimen makes me believe that the carbo/vp obviously were no longer working. How long before he runs out of meds that work on his cancer? Also, the side effects of these two new meds scare me. Any info on them, people's reactions to them would be GREATLY appreciated. I can't help thinking that this time next year, I might have lost him. Mike has always lived for football season ... fantasy teams, etc. I just pray to God that he gets to enter his team again next year. I guess I just take it a day at a time as we all do. Don't need to tell all you how hard that is. My best wishes and prayers for us all. Peggy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
