Cody foote Posted March 4, 2022 Share Posted March 4, 2022 Hi, my dad was diagnosed with Lung Cancer Stage 3b, which went to his lymph nodes. He had his treatment, and responded to treatment very well! In January just gone, dad had a CT scan as one of his check ups, and everything was going the way it should, the oncologist team were thrilled as the tumors were shrinking significantly! Last week Dad had a seizure, the previous week Dad complained about his arm feeling numb, we didn't think nothing of it! Dad went to hospital after his seizure and they had an idication that it was linked to his cancer. They put him through to have an MRI scan, and they said that Dad had 2 brain mets, so they restaged him at Stage 4 as the lung cancer had metastases to the brain. They sent the MRI results to Bristol to get a plan together and we met the oncologist team yesterday and there going to give Gamma knife radiosurgery, which I read about previously and it seems to be a very effective and positive treatment. We hope there going to get dad in sooner rather than later, they did say to dad, untreated he'd have around 3 month and treated they'd like to think he's got 6 months to a year plus. I just wondered if there's any success stories on this forum, who's received/receiving the same treatment as dad. My dad's been on the Lugevity forum since 30th August not long after his first diagnosis. Its helped him through this very difficult and challenging time, his name is justin1970, so alot of the forum knows his story already. Thank you for all your support and for the support that youll still give us all. Many thanks Cody Justin1970, Izzy and WalkingHorse 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
