Guest mona61 Posted October 1, 2004 Share Posted October 1, 2004 My husband has completed 6 weeks of chemo and 36 radiation treatments. They will be doing no more radiation on tumor. We will be having a ct scan done next Wednesday. They have staged him at 3B, it is supposable in some lymph nodes but not certain. Also has not spread to any other organs. . I had asked the doctor if the tumor had shrunk and the lymph nodes did not light up then would it be possible if tumor is still there to do surgery. He has said before that surgery will not be done. Because he feels that putting him through that would not be worth it. And, also once chemo and radiation is done that surgery is not the way to go. That he will continue chemo if cancer still there. I have been watching these boards and it seems that surgery is the way to go. Husband is in good shape and has no other problems. We will be getting a second opinion when ct scan comes back. I was wondering what you thought of his comments. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
