Barb73 Posted September 17, 2009 Author Share Posted September 17, 2009 Update on what's occurring: Well, Patti, you were sooo right about the coumadin levels requiring some changes. It has happened again in that we need to increase the dosage (every fourth day), and see the lab once a week. Matt, the PA, said that if all goes well it might be checked at two-week intervals. The oncology visit resulted in Bill's being taken off the chemo. The reason the doctor gave was that the toxicity was more of a concern than any benefit being gained. The lungs are stable, but the shoulder (recent, new scan taken) showed growth into bone. The neck nodule looks pretty much the same as it did. He spoke with the radiologist two weeks ago, and Bill and I should call him to make an appointment. The radiologist said that he might be able to do something for the neck. He would look further into the shoulder met. We have an appointment for Monday, September 21. I will update about how that goes.
