Topic: Update on Dad
Well dad got the results from the PET scan and it shows the tumor fading after 1/2 way through chemo. The doctors are happy with the results. They are now going to change things up and do the IMRT Radiation along with a chemo pill 2x a day. They are going to radiate the entire bile duct area because they are thnking that is where that little tumor cell started. They are currently working with the surgeon so that they do not interfer with his previous surgery. They might finish up with 6 more weeks of chemo. We are all holding on that we may finally nail it this time. Dad is cautiously optimistic. We keep his hope up. Doctors say 30% they will cure it. Although, I dont really pay attention to the stats...I wonder if any are actually accurate.
