One year since DX for my dad

One year on and my dad is doing ok.

He is just taking strong painkillers and inhalers.

He will see docs again in April unless he feels the need to see them sooner.

I really didn't think my dad would see 2007 but he is still here and me and my family are cherishing each and every day we have with him.

That is great news for your dad, esp since it looks like he only received radiotherapy. Is that right?

X-rays never showed enough for our now Fired PC to help us DX Lisa lung cancer earlier. When you are well CT and MRI scans seem like big deals. After cancer DX they are everyday language.

Don't know what you can squeeze out in England but he needs to have some CT scans done at least.

Many more happy years.

Take care of yourselves - happily - Chanwit

Thanks for your kind replies.

Dad is VERY reluctant to have any contact with hospitals/doctors.

He just wants to be left to get on with things as if nothings wrong.

He only had 4 weeks of radiotherapy,no chemo.

Doctors didn't really push him to have chemo and in a way i am glad as i honestly think he wouldn't have coped with it.

My dad is Irish and his school over in County Cavan are having a school reunion in june 2007 which he really wants to go to.

His sisters are hoping to go and that is our goal to get him there to see all his old friends from Ireland.

Jackie :)
