Guest Sally Posted November 12, 2003 Share Posted November 12, 2003 Sorry to keep bothering you with all the questions but I was wondering if anyone could help me ... My brother hasn't had any "treatment" since July 25th. He is due for a check-up shortly to see how he's doing. Although they only detected the cancer in his lung, diaphragm, and that whole area, they suspect it came from elsewhere. They did tests on his stomach and colon but they came back clear. The doctors said that he didn't want to do anymore searching as there was no point really as firstly, it would only depress to actually know its somewhere else, and secondly, the chemo would hit it anyway. We were happy with this. His oncologist is going to base all his treatments on how he is feeling physically, etc. Is this okay? I know his age is a huge factor in all of this so no real plan has been put into place as he's quite strong. The oncologist has an excellent reputation and has worked in all the top hospitals in London, UK so we all trust his judgement. So has anyone else had the same experience i.e. no real plan, just wait and treat..? Thanks He'll be home tomorrow night - can't wait to see him Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
