palves Posted September 28, 2003 Share Posted September 28, 2003 Hi I'm new to this forum and to LC. My dad was recently dx with NSCL, adenocarcinoma. We are waiting the results from the PET scan and a 2nd meeting w/ the onc. to determine stage and treatment. His bone scan and brain MRI came back clear - thankfully .. Just waiting on pins and needles, trying to deal with every day life, and trying to learn as much as I can before our next appt. What initially sent him to the Dr was a "feeling of faintness" at times, low blood pressure, high pulse rate. They first thought it was pneumonia and my mother thought it was diabetic neuropathy. He has also lost about 20 lbs. He looks VERY thin ... He says he is having shortness of breath now as well and his leg is bothering him which maybe from a pinched nerve or something like that. An u/s this week showed no blood clots. Wondering too if he will be denied participating in any clincial trials due to his (insulin dependent) diabetes. Does anyone know anything about that? Warm hugs to you all. Paula Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
