Today we went to the Doctor to find out the results from the PET test and the CT scan, The doctor had bad news, He said that the test showed that the lungs lit up and they found a new tumor in his abdomen. My son was diagnosed on Feb. 2002, and after going through ABVD chemo for six months, and then a stem cell rescue on March 3,2003, and 25 times of radiation that ened inJune 20, 2003, they said there is no more they can do for him. They said that some times the radiation can produce the light effect in his lung, but in his case they don't think so, they think he has a very agressive hodgkins. It is so hard to believe it because other then a dry cough and being tired he looks great. I asked to get a second opinon and of couse they said that we should but they doubt that anyone would tell us anything different. I was wondering if anybody out there got bad news like this and then proved the Doctor wrong? He was stage 3 B,how could this be happening to him.
