Well my hubs had an appointment at Duke yesterday. First he had an x-ray to see how the fluid looks with his malignant pleural effusion, well there was fluid still there so they could not take the pleurax out. He was so hoping they would take it out since he had no drainage for a week but that was a no go. He was very disappointed because of the discomfort with the pleurax. Does anyone else have one and if so does it cause you pain?
His second appointment was with his kidney oncologist just to see him since he started his Inlyta 3 weeks ago and to do bloodwork and get the results of that. Well he went in with a spot on the top of his head that he thought was a cyst. His doctor told him he believes it is the cancer spread there and for us NOT to touch it at home or try to operate on it here. LOL....that isn't funny but you have to laugh sometimes. He has scans in 5 weeks to include a brain scan this time and we will know 100% what it is but in the meantime I am worried to death about him. Have any of you seen or had this happen to you?
