Flo Bones Posted December 29, 2006 Share Posted December 29, 2006 Hi Everyone, Terry and I meet with the Radiation Oncologist on Wedenesday and the Oncologist on Thursday. They decided to do a radiation/chemo combo type of treatment. Radiation is scheduled for five days a week for five weeks and chemo (Taxol and Carbo) is scheduled for once a week for five weeks. His treatment is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, January 2. What a way to start the new year. I told Terry to put on his full armour and get ready to fight. I have a question? Is it standard procedure to have an MRI on the brain? The oncologist told us that he would give it to us IF we wanted one done. His outlook on the whole ordeal was gloom and doom. I was somewhat disappointed and depress when we left his office. But I quickly picked myself up because I know a Greater Physician. Can anyone share what type of vitamins/supplements they used during treatment. I asked the radiation oncologist about supplements and he said they may interfer with the radiation. Is this true? One more concern of mine: Terry still has a bad cough. The medication they are giving him isn't really helping. Will his cough go away when he start treatment? We were told that the cough is coming from the tumor pressing against the windpipe? Thank you all for your support and love. Flo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
