lsaut Posted November 16, 2015 Share Posted November 16, 2015 Hi, I'm travelling tomorrow to appointments three hours away for my step dad, with whom I am very close. His rheumotologist ordered an xray in September, which prompted him to order a Catscan, and late last week we got a call from a Cancer Centre to come immediately (less than a week) for the following tests: lung biopsy, MRI of the brain, abdomen and chest catscan and bone scan. He is obviously upset and so am I. I have no idea what to expect, but know he has been feeling poor for many months. Coughing up a lot of phlegm, chest infections, fatigue, and honestly I think he is confused a lot of the time. I can't imagine they would order this many tests if they didn't feel that something was wrong. How do I support him through this without getting emotional myself? Waiting for answers is so hard. Thank you!~ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
