Hi everyone. My boyfriend is Scissors, who was dxed with stomach cancer in Jan. and just completed chemo/radiation 2 weeks ago. We met with a surgeon last week and he had a PET scan Friday to see how well the treatment worked in shrinking the tumor. He is supposed to have surgery in a month to 6 weeks.
The surgeon said that they wait 4-6 weeks after because the radiation is still working even after the treatments end.
I am worried that maybe the cancer spread in spite of the treatment.
The worst part of this is that it is the weekend and of course we can't contact his doctors.
Does anyone know if this is normal (steep increase in pain at site of cancer after treatment)?
Peace and prayers to all.
