I am trying to figure out what impact hypercalcemia will have on his outcome. He has stage IV BOT cancer. He had a 4.5 cm cancerous tumor removed in July 2012. That lymph node showed extracapsilar spread. A BOT tumor removed September 19 with clean margins. He is scheduled to start chemo and radiation on Tuesday. As of now he is in the hospital taking a lot of saline IV and medications to bring down his calcium level. I have done some reading on hypercalcemia with cancer patients and I can't find one good outcome. I am hoping we have survivors here that can calm my mind.
