sophia88 Posted March 20, 2004 Share Posted March 20, 2004 My Dad has successfullu fought stage IV cancer for one year. He returned to Florida and his friends from PA four weeks ago after the green light from his oncologist. He wa taken to ER and admitted for low blood pressure, chest pain and labored breathing (he needs oxygen on more and more often). They advised him to come home to PA and see his oncologist ASAP. They said there is nothing they can do. He had fluid in his bad lung and they said they think it is being created by cancer cells eating the lung itself. His one live enzyme was extremely high, but one cardiologist said that can happen after chemo and radiation (that ended at least 4 months ago.) Has anyone had any similar experience. I pray they are wrong and the fluid can be drained so he will breathe easier. He is such a fighter, he will never give in...but this time I am so scared. Please share any experiences with me...thank you...I haven't posted in months....I miss the support. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
