cmeandk Posted June 10, 2004 Share Posted June 10, 2004 Well- My father had his appointment with the doctor yesterday. Apparently they didnt do the CT of his pelvis(which was the whole idea behind it because of the severe pain) Instead the did just his chest and back. The Doc wouldn't give us a direct answer on anything. WHen I asked about how he was going to change treatment since the cancer has spread, he said he wasn't. I asked about the new Spots on his sternum and back and all he kept saying was " Bone leisions(?) are hard to read." Four times I asked the questions and four times I got the same reply. The Doc said that since the tumer in his lung shrunk from 3.5 to 2.2 the chemo was working and there was no need to change at this time. My father finishes this round of chemo Friday and will go for one more round on the 30th and THEN they will rescan and determine what if any changes will be neccessary. Is this normal behavior for a doctor to have? When we asked about the leg pain he acted like this was the first time we had mentioned it to him, when in all reality we mentioned it to him on the first date of treatment in March. Any suggestions? Sorry to ramble on, I just needed to vent Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
