christymike Posted October 14, 2003 Share Posted October 14, 2003 I cant even begin to explain what i have been going through lately. Ive tried to stay so positive up until now and it seems that being positive isnt working for me and im slipping in to depression and anger. As you can see from my subject my dad had another broncy on tuesday of last week and found the tumor was active again and growing. Not only that but there was soo much fluid around his heart that they had to do emergency surgery and he was in ICU for 3 days. He got out of the hospital yesterday and the Doctor put him on Iressa (what we have been begging for since day one) any ways the doctor seems to have no hope in the iressa and told my dad that he thinks he had 6 months. I dont understand why chemo is not an option again? And will the iressa work i havent heard any successes. I keep hoping that my dad is different and he will beat this and his cancer is different...but,,i guess you have to have some hope sometimes, but in all reality i dont know what to believe anymore. God Bless you all. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
