Tumor Primer ( Or Spin ? ) For you


Recommended Posts

Okay, here's the deal, or should I say spin, on my wife's brain tumors. The rad onc ( reluctantly ) stated that the med onc is technically correct. My wife has no brain tumors ! Why ? Because tumors that are currently shrinking or dying or dead ( " tombstones " ) are no longer considered tumors. And, this appears to be the case with my wife. What a relief ! ... Okay, I get it but I also think that we have some helpful spin at work here. A nice save.

Thanks for the kind words. I have no complaints about the surgery and radiation. The brain and spine improvement or stabilization continue to be the bright spots. I'm not particularly happy about the chemo. It doesn't look like the chemo has accomplished much. Overall the tumor destruction seems to be held at bay but nobody has told us that there has been any shrinkage of tumors outside of the brain and spine.
