Just had our rounds with the oncology people. David's chemotherapy and radiation has been put on hold. They do not think he is well enough to undergo treatment at this time. Their goal is to get him taking enough nutrition and liquid through his PEG. He has been put on the continuous feed pump and started at 10 ml per hour. They gave him some phenegren because he became nauseated after flushing his tube. He has some residual kidney pain, for which they are giving him morphine. He still is taking IV fluids at this time. The are scheduling some scans for him to make sure nothing has spread and that his kidneys are not damaged since the Cisplatin is hard on the kidneys any way. I still have a difficult time with the diagnosis of humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy. I have asked multiple times if they are sure this was from the cancer and they say it is.
