mary colleen Posted September 4, 2007 Share Posted September 4, 2007 I've just returned from the hospital, where my husband had an appointment to see the Oncologist. He saw her just 3 weeks ago, and had a clean CT. However, he has had a sudden decline since then. He has lost over 14 pounds, stopped wanting to eat, and has declined neurologically in several ways - balance problems, etc. He failed his 'mini-neuro" exam today, couldn't follow the doctor's finger or follow her directions. He is having a brain MRI later today, and a lumbar puncture tomorrow if that is negative. Best case, and I really hope probable, scenario is that he is having some kind of late inflammation and swelling from his WBR that ended 2 months ago. The doctor seemed to think that was possible. Hoping for the best here! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
