We got some great hopeful news this morning! This doctor, the nurses and staff is absolutely wonderful. From the moment we arrived, I knew we were finally in the right place. What a difference.
First, this dr. said we needed to address her issues with the fluid in her lungs. There are two possible solutions but one would require actual surgery, and a 2-3 day stay in the hospital. The other procedure would be an outpatient option. However, she is referring her to an Oncologist Pulmonary dr. right there in the same cancer center. Everything is under one roof! So my mom will be calling him tomorrow to get that started first.
After that is addressed, she can start a new chemo. This chemo is very effective in this type of cancer. She said many of her patients have had great success with this type of chemo. She also said she has other treatment options as well.
So my mom was exhausted but I think she is really feeling relieved after being told there was no hope. This dr today said There is always hope.
Thank you so much ladies, I hope that I am here for each one of you as you all have been for me. I'm not going anywhere so please know that you can turn to me for whatever you need.
