cmeandk Posted June 4, 2004 Share Posted June 4, 2004 My Dad was having some severe leg pain before his last chemo round and the doctor ordered a CT of is torso, The good news is the tumors in his lung, lowerspine, and brochial tube have decreased slightly. The bad news is that there are new tumors on his sternum and upper back. He had the CT on Tuesday, so I called the dr for results yesterday. Of course I have a million questions, that I forgot to ask. I was just so taken back by the fact that it had spread. I even forgot to ask about his leg!!! Apparently he has been having pain in his chest that he didnt tell us about. I am by far no expert, but isn't the chemo suppose to stop the growth or spreading of the cancer? And if that is true, will they stop chemo? Rradiation shrinks the tumors? He had radiation, 30 X, but that was 2 mths ago. He goes in for his next round of chemo on Wednesday, so I guess we will find out more then. If I can get them to give me a straight answer. Any advice or info you may have would be great!! God Bless!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
