Where to start, it is all a jumble, forgive me if I bounce around. Paul started the Oxy and xeloda, all went fine, no bothersome side effects. He had a PET done which showed some spots on spine and pelvis, which correlated to some pain he was having. Started some very low dose pain meds and pain went away. He also went for a MRI (3 hours long under a general) so we could get more detailed information. Don't have the results back. This past weekend I just felt something was wrong, he fought me on going into the hospital, and he was persuasive in his arguments. I am sure other spouses/caregivers have been in the same position, trying to get what need to be done, done and having to fight the entire time, and in the end giving in. He had a blood appt. draw this am and the nurse looked at him and sent us straight to the ER.
