TinaMDA Posted October 3, 2018 Share Posted October 3, 2018 Hi everyone, My father was diagnosed with lung cancer stage 4 (metastasized to the bones) back in February. After two chemotherapies his health condition worsened, meanwhile his mutation test came back positive for BRAF V-600 mutation. Unfortunately during chemo he developed blood clots. At the moment he is taking the two combination pills from my understanding it blocks the proteins from dividing too fast. He is also receiving the injections to stop the blood from clogging. (I can’t remember the names of the pills and injections. I can write them later if needed.). Anyhow i wonder if there is something more that we can do for him? Do doctors operate on metastatic lung cancer? Do the blood clots go away? He is 55 years old, has no bone fractures, his health improved since taking the pills. Now that he is feeling stronger I was wondering if there is something more to do to kill the cancer (if possible). My father is undergoing treatment in Europe, his doctor speaks French (which I don’t speak fluently). Thank you for your time, cristina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
