cmeandk Posted June 30, 2004 Share Posted June 30, 2004 My father had both the bonescan and mri on Thursday last week. His doctor called him on Monday to tell him he needed to see his Radiologist on Tuesday. He did and now has to do 10 doses of radiation to his left hip joint for pain. We had our regularly scheduled chemo today only to get more bad news. Not only does he have cancer in his right lung, bronchial tube, and L4 in his back, now it is in his neck, sternum, ribs, middle back and both hip bones. The doctor has changed his chemo though. He is now on Topocitan(?). 3 weeks on, 1 week off. We have our annual family vacation schedlued for July 10th to Florida. Dad is more determined than ever now to go. Please pray that every thing goes well and we have a wonderful time. I am so down now. I feel like everytime we go all we do is hope for good news and all we ever get is bad news. Does anyone ever get a break? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
