Topic: Mom's Stents.
I am waiting for Mom to get back from surgery but so far the news I have been getting is GREAT!!!
Mom had scans last Monday and apparently the doctor doing her stent replacement has seen the latest scan and told her that the tumors have SHRUNK MORE!! Oh please, please let this be true!!
I am not with her today at the hospital as I have messed up my knee and am in a full length leg immobilizer and on crutches and pain meds, etc. It was just not possible for me to drive her and being on my leg all day was a definite bad idea so my doctor "grounded" me. She is with another family member so I know she is in good hands but I am going kind of nuts waiting to hear any news
I am waiting to hear whether the plastic stents will be replaced with new plastic ones of if he opted to go with metal. When we met with this Dr in early November he said he did not want to use metal but today he said he may... Wishing so much I could have been there!!
Mom has an appointment with the oncologist on Thursday to review her scans and discuss the future for her treatments. I WILL be there! I am so out of the loop with her at this point. It will be great to get some GOOD news for Christmas!
I will let you know as soon as I hear anything more!!
Hugs to all and thank you so much for being here and for caring
