LindaMRG Posted September 27, 2003 Share Posted September 27, 2003 Hello Friends, Thank you for your prayers, the oncologist said my father will have surgery. He spoke with surgeon and the date is set for 10/8. The PET showed that the chemo did not shrink tumor or node. However, onc explained that he could not give my father big blasts of chemo due to his bone marrow being in not so good shape because of the lymphoma in '01. There are no new mets. He wants my father to have the surgery to remove upper right lobe and mediastinal dissection. Does anyone have experience with the chemo not having any affect on tumor and node and having the surgery? Thanks again, dear friends.
