rinksgal Posted November 8, 2003 Share Posted November 8, 2003 Darrell is on cumadin and so far its not where they want it to be. its only 1.4 This is due to the 3 blood clots they found... hes currently on 7.5 mg. of cumadin and they almost increase it to 10.mg today, but wanted to know what he was taking medicine whys... and anyway they told him to stop taking fish oil. and restest tuesday..Guess they thin this could be interfering with his blood levels.. We saw the radiation oncologist today... and his concerns with darrell are the new pleural effusion, which he said could be cause from cancer, or the radiation, and or emphasema.. which darrells never been told he has... Also his concerns are the liver, tumors in lymphnodes, and the new indertermiate nodule in Darrellls lower right lobe... We'll see with follow up scans that will be done in January...Is anyone else on cumadin and have they had problems with getting the right levels set ?? His liver lesions are stable and no new growth which was good, and skrinage with the lymphnodes, he said over all good report, buts whats good if there still cancer.... I worry so much about this man that I love... He now thinks I have a boyfriend... he said hes sorry, he knows better, but guess hes worried because theres not been no intimacy in our relationship for months. I tell him it doesn't matter to me, but I can see why he worrys about it. He has no reason to though!!I just want him to live and beat this damn disease!!! We don't ask for prognosis, it doesn't matter, do they really know any ways.. We'll know if and when its starting to kick his butt... We'll know... they won't need to tell us.. we already know the statistics.., so why ask prognosis. everyone is different... God I hate this disease!! I hate lc and I will do something to help him or someone sometime during my life.. There needs to be more awareness... I want to help!!!!
