Update on my FIL

Recommended Posts

He met with the radiologist and oncologist yesterday. They all feel that the cancer in his rib and chest wall is coming from his lung even though it's not showing up on any number of tests yet. Because it's adenocarcinoma they know there's a primary location somewhere. They are sending the specimin off for further studies because he's in the 5% of people who have adenocarcinoma with no sign of the primary as of yet. So, that being said, they are starting 7 weeks of radiation and also chemotherapy in two weeks. He will be getting the carbo/taxol combo that my dad got when he was going through lung cancer. He seems to be doing really well physically so we're praying for the best. Hopefully the treatments will put him in a looooong remission. :)
