jamie Posted March 16, 2004 Share Posted March 16, 2004 My dad has IIIb LC. His doctors havent given us much information, and all this is pretty new. Quick situation info... Dx 2/5/04, IIIB, some lymphnode involvment (doctors didnt say how much), non operable no signs of cancer otherwise. PET scan shows "something lit up in neck" but doctors not concerned. My question is for anyone who can tell my why my dad is inoperable. Im pretty confused. Originally they told us the goal was to shrink his grapefruit sized tumor with chemo and radiation, and go from there. Monday they said it had shrunk in half! Great news or so we thought. My dad then asked about surgery, and they looked at him like he was crazy, then informed him he was never a canidate for surgery! He said he felt like he was slapped in the face with cancer again! Here he thought (and so did I) that he could beat this,,, and now things again look bleak. Anyone who can fill me in? Like i said, This is all really new to us .
