Today went pretty well

So, today we had the ct scans for my dad. The results were that his tumor in lung has shrunk considerably, however it's not 100% gone. His cancer has not spread anywhere else in his body, which is great news.

His oncologist recommended radiation therapy to his chest, and a lower dose to his brain ( for preventive measures for the future). Although I would have loved to hear that there is no sign of cancer, we are blessed for the news we did receive today- and that radiation is something he can get! I'm hoping this radiation goes well. I can say that my prayers were answered today. πŸ™ I'm staying optimistic and having faith we can put this cancer at bay for a while.

  • That's a really great report. I'm glad for him that he can have the radiation. It seems his oncology team is being aggressive and that a good thing.

  • Sorry about the delay in getting back to you. Yeppers.......all is GREAT! Clear PET scan - 4 Years NED! Our GOD is an awesome GOD! I pray all continues to go well with your dad.

  • It sounds like the news was great. I'm not sure I would want the radiation of the brain if there are no signs of cancer at this time. Radiation can scar the area and if so, he would never be able to receive radiation to that area again. I would question the doctor on that decision but maybe you've already covered it. It just seems odd that they would give him radiation where no cancer exists. I'm not a doctor but I would question it. Good luck.

  • Keep up the positive attitude - it makes a big difference!!
