My father's scans came in saying there are new growths across his spine.
Original plan was to go on Chemo (Docetaxcel), but since these new scans they're saying we either choose between Surgery or Radiation.
With Surgery the recovery time could be around 3 months. Doctor said it would be a risk because within that 3 month recovery time, we can't start Chemo until it's healed. There is a possibility for new growths in between.
With radiation, the Doctor said recovery time would be a lot quicker so new issues can be addressed more quickly.
I'm not sure about any of this, but I'd love to hear any suggestions, advice, or stories. Wishing you all luck on your journey!
Radiation is the least intrusive. What does the neurologist say?
Thank you for the response! Neurologist said they are leaning towards Radiation.
