Thanks for your comments and support. The oncologist, Dr. Rodriguez, at Cleveland gave us some hope! The tumor is into the wall and they think it has spread to only a few lymph nodes, however, she stated that Dan could have radiation since it has not spread further. The next step is to have a Pet scan. If he would have chemo, it would definitely damage his kidney and he would be on dialysis for life. We still do not know the stage, probably 3. He can also get his treatment here in Wheeling. This is good news, as all our family is here and is very supportive. It is great to have this discussion board where I can talk and get support from otheres who have walked in my shoes.
