tess Posted March 6, 2004 Share Posted March 6, 2004 Hi everyone, thought I'd better tell you what happened today. We found out that Rob has cancer in his right #6 rib, and also in the opposite side. The left side we were not aware of because he has no pain there. (We know it was in the left side.)It must be very small! Anyway, we are scheduled to go to a 3D Radiation specialist in Tacoma on the 15th to talk over what we need to do to get rid of this demon in his ribs. The bone scan still lights up on his T12 vertebre and hip, although he has not had pain there for months. The Dr says it will light up for a long time. (not quite sure what this means) We will be so happy to get rid of the pain. He feels pretty good about the news because during the scan, he said when he looked at the screen. he thought he lit up like a Christmas tree! WE were so glad he was wrong about that! He also got a little stronger medicine for the pain, so he won't be so down. I can't imagine how that bone pain feels, I just know it is debilitating! Anyway, after the meeting with the radiologist we will get started on the radiation again . He shouldn't feel as bad and the first time around (we hope) It was hard on him. Good luck to everyone here and we are praying for all of you. By the grace of God may you be healed! If not in this life, just think, no more pain when we get to the other side!!!!!!!!!!! Amen!
