Update on hubs

on Sat Jul 23, 2016 5:38 pm
Hubs had a Cat scan done on Monday. So far the chemo is doing what is should do, which is retarding the growth of the existing tumors and preventing new tumors. He has had several rough days, usually upon first waking up. I try to be very quiet so he can get all the rest he needs. Has very little appetite and has lost another pound. It is very difficult watching him go from a nice healthy weight down to less then 178#s. Thank goodness I have this site to help me keep my sanity. Thank you everyone!

This is really difficult for me to post. Husband had an appointment with his radiation oncologist today. His tumor on his chest wall has grown and is hard! Also the dr discovered a tumor on his sternum. Dr. went right ahead and did his tattoos for the upcoming needed radiation. He will go through an 8 day round this time starting on Monday. In addition, he is to have a CT scan done in a few weeks. When he starts the radiation therapy, he will not be able to get his chemo!

Kiethann:

I was thinking about you and your husband this morning. How is he doing? I have so many friends going through cancer treatments right now. I pray that one day no one will have to endure it...cancer needs to be wiped out! Praying for you both.

Hugs,

Tonya

Thank you, Tonya, for thinking about us. Hubs has his ups and downs. Right now, we are struggling to get some sores healed on one of his legs. Other then that he is doing pretty well. Thank goodness though for pain medication.

Hubs has had a miner set back. Other day he woke up with a itchy rash all over his body. Plus the areas on his left lower leg began weeping. His left leg from the knee down very swollen. Dopler was done and ruled out blood clot. Started on new medication and antibiotic, plus a cream for his legs. The rash had progressed to his upper chest front and back and he has been very miserable. He had even talked about just giving up because he could not take the rash, itching and swelling any more. Luckily, the medications seem to be helping. However determination made by his oncologist to defer his chemo treatment for two weeks. I hope two weeks without his chemo will not cause his cancer to spread. Fingers crossed that all is good. He had a CT done last week and at that time everything was stable. Well, thanks anyone who reads this.

Kiethann:

I am sorry your hubby has had a setback. I pray that he will get through this and that his chemo can resume soon. Take care of yourself too! Being a caregiver can really take a toll before you know it.

Hugs and prayers,

Tonya

Thank you both Tonya and Barb. You both lift me up with your replies. He saw his primary today and we have a new treatment for an area of concern. fingers crossed that next week he can resume chemo. Not for sure if oncologist will continue same chemo or start him on a different one.

Hubs is still with us. He is starting to have some other side effects from the chemo, but his chemo nurse said these side effects happen to those who have been on chemo for a long period of time. Finally got his itching under control and managed with a variety of O'Keefs products. The swelling in his right leg has gone done considerably also.

Hubs had a CT scan on Monday. I had them mail the report to me. It arrived today. There is growth shown on his tumors on both of his adrenal glands. Also, there was blood in his urine in the collection bag. Thank goodness we will see his chemo dr. tomorrow after his lab work is drawn.
