Hi my healing buddies. I have two questions. One is that my father has over 100 Mets in his body. He's on lupron and exgeva. Did chemo last year and immunotheapy this year. The scans have remained exactly the same except one came back with one of the tumors slightly bigger.
He has asked the doctors how it it even possible that nothing at all could change and is it possible that some tumors are dead or inactive. The doctor said noone could know without biopsy but he doesn't think so. Is it even possible for inactive or dead cells to show up on scans?
The doctor said when he feels it's necessary he'll add casodex or xanti(sorry think spelled wrong), but why wait?
Lastly my dad says he's not in too much pain yet he's very slow to walk. His overall mobility is just very slow and that bothers him.
My mother died of lung cancer Aug 9th, and I'm horribly afraid to lose my father too. He's the best dad in the world, and I'm desperately trying to get him to get a second opinion or to use natural medicine but I didn't get far in that one.
Ty everyone in advance for the answers, the hope, and the sheer intelligence you always pass on to me. Keep smiling my heros!!!
