I have asked the doctor 3 times and he sidesteps my question every time. I do not know what stage or grade the lymphoma
is. The doctor did however tell me that he has a less than 50% survival rate
, but I could not bring myself to tell my husband this and I try to stay as upbeat as possible. The PET scan done 4 weeks ago showed that my husband only has the cancer in the tumor in his chest. It has now been 10 weeks since his original diagnosis and treatment. Some time has passed since I posted the question.
We have an appointment today to talk about radiation
, but we are concerned how that will affect that hematoma
in his back. Will it start bleeding again or will it cause it to do something else that they aren't expecting it to and are they going to do nothing for my husband again if something does happen?
The bleeding was caused because the heparin
level was allowed to go through the roof while he was in the hospital.
Thank you for caring enough to answer. I greatly appreciate it!
