Topic: mets to lung and lymph nodes
this week has not been good. My Dad's DT scan (only 5 months post resection) is showing enlarged lymph nodes and nodules in 1 of the lungs. He is going to start chemo within the next couple of weeks, he has been offered gemcitabine and carboplatin. (see my posting under chemo for more info). Would really appreciate it if anybody has similar experience of mets post resection and could share their experiences.
Also my Dad has pain and discomfort in his back and abdominal pain is getting worse, the offending lymph nodes are near the kidney so this accounts for the back pain. any experiences/ techniques that have helped?
