Well, the appointment wasn't too bad.
She has another primary cancer in her lung, but that was there before, its just got a little bit bigger and some fluid around her heart. There are some little ones in her lungs too.
She has a tumour growing on her left adrenal gland also.
And multiple lymph nodes are pretty big.
But her tumour levels haven't gone up again and they are doing some more tests to see why she has such weak legs as there is no tumour they can see on or near her spine.
They want to do an MRI and an echo.
They need to check out the fluid around her heart too and maybe drain it off.
Her liver is still clear so that's good.
There is no fluid in her stomach either which is also good. But its a mystery why her belly is so big if there is no fluid or large tumour.
It wasn't as bad as we were expecting anyway, but still worse than before.
That's to be expected I guess.
We will know a bit more when the other tests are done.
They may want to do some treatment soon, depending on whats causing her pain.
They are unsure of which cancer is causing the problems so this needs to be determined before they can decide on treatment or not.
But that's all we know for now.
Here's the funny thing....I'm on the phone to Tahni CSV the other night and she has been talking to her friend whose dad is a doctor and Tahni ended up talking to him about mum....long story short he tells her some things for me to ask about so I do and I mention his name.....
That got em sitting up straight!
Apparently he is one of the head honchos in oncology at the hospital and now they are jumping!
I swear the whole demeaner (?) of the doctor changed.
So, test will be done pronto and the next appointment is only 2 weeks away.
Hmmmmm...this may not be very articulate.
I am exhausted.
