Flowergirlie Posted November 26, 2006 Share Posted November 26, 2006 Well, we had to make a trip to the emergency room yesterday for profuse vomiting, nausea and lethargy with a twist of extreme anxiety. What a weekend this has been...It turns out his sodium level is dangerously low and it takes a long time to raise the levels because it could kill him...??? Also, the on-call doctor mentioned that in the PET results, they saw lesions in his back area (possible bone??? and our oncologist never mentioned this???) and ordered an x-ray for a second look. The x-ray showed nothing and my husband did the, "see, I told ya nothing's there routine." A new oncologist came to see him in the hospital and wanted to order an MRI and my husband refused it. He said his doctor is going to cure him and he doesn't need anyone else's "thoughts". : I feel frustrated because I think that since he (new oncologist) is there, it would behoove him (husband) to be open minded to what other opinion's are, given his prognosis. I am not sure if it matters if there are mets to other places if chemo is his only option anyway. Any thoughts on any of this??? I came home to rest for a little bit so rest I better do. More time off work and more pay I will not be getting and I do not know how I am supposed to keep everything afloat anymore. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
