Topic: Just when we thought things were going well
Yesterday, Lee went in for his Gemzar, and as usual they did his bloodwork first. Dr. Mathern came in to speak with him and told him that within the last week, the tumor has doubled in size and chemo was cancelled. They scheduled an MRI for today...but rescheduled for first thing Monday morning. After results from Monday's scan they will determine what route to take next. Lee is yellow, his ankles swollen...but otherwise feeling quite well, and has gained a whopping 43 pounds. We are turning to all of you, the experts. Is tumor growth normal....does Gemzar stop working...what chemo/radiation route advice can you offer....we are feeling like this might just be the end of the road for us. Any kind of guidance from you will be of great, great appreciation.
