Hope09 Posted June 10, 2009 Share Posted June 10, 2009 Hi All, Haven't been on here in a while....lots of reasons. Weeks after treatment (Carbo/Taxol/Radiation) Dad was hospitalized for stomach pain/not being able to eat and major coughing. 6 days, blood transfusions, IV antibiotics (for pneumonia/pseudomonas and strep infection)...then home. Stomach slowly improving. Before all this, good news - "treatment" results were "remarkable"...30% shrinkage in primary tumor, no cancer activity. Now there's possibility of pneumonectomy - left lung. Differing opinions amongst the teams of docs (shocker). Chance of cure, per surgeon, is 20% with this surgery. Chance of cure without - per all - is <15%. Would you do it? Have you done it? Know someone who has? Please share your thoughts. We are overwhelmed by all the info - especially since we're hearing different things from the docs. THanks and take care. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
