Hi guys! We went to talk to the onc today to get my brothers CT and MRI results. She said there are 2 new tiny nodules on the lungs, but she said the radiologist said she thinks they may have been there before but were too smalll to see on the last scan. The liver tumor, she explained, has kind of shriveled. She said she'd like us to talk to a liver doctor to get her opinion as to whether my brother would be a good candidate for chemo embolization. She is worried about his clotting issues because he had been hospitalized for clots to the lungs late last year. She still feels he needs another opinion to see if he could get this procedure done. Is there anyone who has had it done that would mind sharing their experience? Thanks.
According to his onc, he is stable and she is going to continue him on this low does chemo to give him quality of life. She gave him the option to take a break if he needs it, but my brother wants to keep going. I tell you, my brother is my hero! He is such a warrior! My mom would be so proud of him! I still hold hope for a miracle and keep praying for a cure.
Hugs to all of you!
