We met with oncologist today following the MRI yesterday. It would
appear that there is still an area of concern, but that remains unchanged
since previous MRI in March - if anything swelling has reduced slightly
which is a little contradicting given my husbands increased weakness on left
side. Oncologist is of the opinion that there is more than likely tumour still
present there and that may be accounting for the increased weakness. His
recommendations short term are as follows :-
-Commence Temodal (5 day dose)
-Next consult with oncologist on June 3rd
He did also speak with us regarding treatment of Avastin - I expect this
will be an option if tumour is more evident on next MRI (due June 23rd)
Our oncologist was great and answered all the questions we had - we actually expected
that MRI would be inconclusive so will just see how things go !
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
