I am a new caregiver and we are so new to this we don't even have all the lingo yet. My husband had very high calcium and is now being told he has kidney cancer that has spread to the bone. I'm scared and so is he. I know I have to be strong and am trying my best. 4 months ago he was in complete kidney failure and was told it was caused by two meds he has been taking for some time now. 4 months ago they saw none of this and now all this? I am wondering if the meds that caused the kidney failure if it caused the cancer? We are both 63 so legal stuff is not what we are thinking. We are just trying to come to terms with how this happened so quickly. We are going to the VA as he has no insurance so hope it will be a good hospital. He has his diagnostic workup next Tuesday so will probably find out alot more then.
Can you offer suggestions as to what we need to be asking about ie- tests, results etc. We are like I said lost so far.
Thank you for any help and God bless all of you dealing with this disease. I lost my brother 4 months ago to brain cancer.
