Maryanne Posted July 30, 2008 Share Posted July 30, 2008 Hi All, I have a new update as Joel had an appointment with his surgeon who did his two operations to get his intake of Joel's present situation. First it was great seeing him, it had been two years since Joel's last operation and of course we wished we would not have to see him again, except under different circumstances. We love this guy as he saved Joel's life during his first operation back in 04. He looked at the CT and we told him about what the Pulmonary Doctor had said about him doing okay if they took the lung Well our surgeon agreed with Dr West, as he definetely agrees with Joel doing the Cyberknife. He personally knows the Doctor who is in charge of it and says she is wonderful and they are so excited with the results and success they have seen from this procedure so far. And it is pain free and they can use it again and again if other cancerous nodules appear. He feels that Joel is a perfect candidate for this as he does not want to take more lung if he does not have too. So its on to Joel's appointment on Friday with the Cyberknife Onchologist. We are hoping she feels the same way. Our surgeon is going to call her to discuss Joel's case. Tomorrow is his Pet scan and Friday the Cyberknife. Will keep you all infomed when we find out what she tells us. I just feel so fortunate that this is now FDA approved and Inurance should cover it as it is radiation just a different form. And also that we do not have to travel far for the procedure as it is now in our back yard, so to speak. Wish us luck. Friday is Joel's B-day so that would be a great present.
