Nova Posted May 14, 2007 Share Posted May 14, 2007 I realize I sounded disappointed in the fact that Harry's tumor had shrunk 60%. I didn't mean to, at all. I'm very grateful and happy about it! It's just that when we first met with the oncologist, and we discussed the type of cancer he has, and the treatment, I clearly remember that doctor saying: "Chemo and radiation will shrink it- right down to "nothing".... Now, should I have not taken that sentence quite so literally? I truly expected that nasty tumor to be shrunk "right down to nothing", and part of the little bugger is still there!!!! Is there a "normal" for this? I mean, does everyone's shrink some?, do some not shrink at all? Is it usually about 50-60%? Just trying to figure out if that 60% we got news of, is really good, not so good, or average! (Either way, I'm thankful).
