Guest NowakowDA Posted June 22, 2004 Share Posted June 22, 2004 Well! I feel like someone just kicked me in the stomach, real hard. Took Mom to Santa Fe today for her PET Scan. When I arrived, there was a call from Dr. Wong her radiation oncologist. Apparently Dr. Rabinowitz, the medical oncologist read the MRI Mom had done Sunday June20th. The cancer has spread to her brain. Dr. Wong said she has a tumor in her brain. He said that he will now go after the tumor in her head first, then attack the one in her lung. In one of my posts, I said that the hardest thing I've ever had to do was to accept the fact that I might loose Mom to cancer. I was wrong. The hardest thing I've ever had to do was tell my Mom that the cancer had spread. We see Dr. Wong tomorrow to see what happens next. Dr. Kahn, the radiation oncologist in Santa Fe who did the PET scan said Mom's confusion and dis orientation was probably caused by the tumor in her head. He gave her Dexamethason. He said it would reduce the swelling. I keep asking myself, what next! Don Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
