TammyL Posted December 5, 2008 Share Posted December 5, 2008 Greg has been off the chemo since September. Had scan in september and small 3 small nodules on his oppisite lung which happened while undergoing chemo.We were waiting to see if anything came of them..Scan sceduled in January(hoping to get throug the holidays.) Early october he had a cold then he had a pain in his rib that was unbearable and making it difficult to breath. We went to ER before colombus day wekend,CT scan showed nothing new unable to explain why there is pain shceduled bone scan again no answers lungs are clear and why is ther pain nobody knows.. had a Ct scan again in this week at the ER (pain inhis side again having difficulty breathing the nodules have gotten bigger and the original tumor got bigger as well. Now we know what the pain is from.. Oncologist suggested that radiation would work for one spot that was causing the pain in his side. Two weeks of radiation at most will get rid of that nodule. He is to start chemo and avastin monday before christmas 08.. for the rest of the tumor/and nodules.. What a fall he is having a hard time hearing 3 months off cisplatin.. How long does this ringing last anyone?? I know everyone is different just looking to be able to talk to my husband from more than two feet away and the tv doesn't have to be on full blast... ALso Gregs aunt was just diagnosed with nsclc and she is terminal. She was hospitalized for blood clots in her lungs and then she got the news and there really isn't anything they can do .Drs thought that she could do some chemo just to jeep it at bay but she got ill really fast and is not doing well at all. Never smoked was in good health til recently. That on top of chemo for christmas this a little tough. Drs said it wasn't hereditary and we all had some relief that maybe our children or his family wouldn't have a greater chance of getting sick ..then his aunt... Not sure must be something in the genes he is young for this . Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
