Topic: Scan results...some help and suggestions please.
I dont get on here much...i wish I had more time. But I knew I'd get some help and answers here
My moms latest scan was 7/24/13.. showed a t12 and L2 spot along with many new "lesions" in her liver. And I believe there are a few spots in her lungs. Also something about hypodense lesions. None of which have been a definite cancer diagnosis. She had a bone scan and we haven't gotten the results yet. She has been "stable" up until this point and has had no chemo since sometime in april 2012. She did 6 rounds of gemzar/cisplatin and her tumors reduced 25% overall. Good results... they stopped her chemo not sure why and have never mentioned starting it again. I'm not sure why that is either..
So I'm just wondering if any of you could help me understand this and offer suggestions of what we can suggest. I know this is bad, and that her cancer is spreading more. I just want her around longer and she wants to fight! She is definitely a fighter and we have a ton of love in our small family..
We live in Kentucky, western Ky. And I honestly hate her doctor but other docs in different fields say he's really great. He just has little bedside manner and made me livid for slamming a book down at me when I asked a question about her scan.
Thanks for any and all help! She was diagnosed dec 2011 btw.
