I am the wife of a man who lost his first love to hodgkins about 8 years ago, and whose father was giagnosed with liver and lung cancer this past July which has now spread into his bones. He is receiving chemo and radiation 4 x a week and a calcium treatment once a month. The doctor is not saying much except whichever area they radiate one week may have a new tumor he next. He is a young 54 and I worry for both my husband and mother in law. Because they have not said anything I wonder what it going on. they recently put him on blood pressure meds and he up til the bone cancer has been very strong. He continues to go to work everyday even with the chemo and radiation and was told 2 days ago that they found something on his hip that they would not treat until it became painful. He is currently being teated for tumors in his 3rd vertebrae and one in his neck. I am very sad for them. He is a great man who gave up smoking when I got pregnant with his granddaughter because he wanted to see her get married. I know you are not doctors but any advice would be appreciated.
