kimblanchard Posted June 10, 2003 Share Posted June 10, 2003 Hi, My boyfriend is very sick. We will find out his results of four biopsies this afternoon. I fear that he has cancer everywhere and that we wasted so much time. He felt ill over 2 months ago! He refused to see a doctor...he is the kind of person that would rather wait and see if he gets better. He finally went in early May and was told he had pnuemonia. He was given a strong antibiotic for ten days and it didn't do him any good. He then waited a few days to call the doctor. He went in and his doctor was concerned. He went immediately to the ER and had tests done and a cat scan. There was a big (4cm) white spot on the CT. He was sent to a pulmonary specialist (a few days later). The specialist ordered him to do 3 sputum cytology tests. Almost a week later he had a follow up appt. The tests came back negative but he was told that that doesn't mean anything (so why did they bother doing them!?!). His specialist setup an appt for a biopsy the following day (Thurs). My boyfriend wanted to go to a different hospital and they couldn't get him in until Monday! So we waited ANOTHER 4 days. He finally had the biopsies done yesterday and several more cat scans and x-rays. The doctor legally could not say anything until the tests come back but he said it is likely cancer and if so it is at least stage III. I have a really bad feeling that it is in his brain. He is really really sick. He has lost alot of wait and he is sweating profusely with really big temp swings (96 to over 103). I am so scared for him. I wish we had not waited so long but we were confident in his doctor and really felt that all he had was pnuemonia. He is so sick. Does anyone here have a similar situation with a positive ending...or at least some positive news? God forbid, if the cancer is everywhere is there an effective treatment? He is so young...he is only 50. This came on so suddenly. Any good news is greatly appreciated. Christina Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
