Re: Looking for hope

Yes I took it that way, and my wife did too. I must say this is a great place for support. I am in awe of everyone going through this from those currently undergoing treatment to those who have have finished treatment. Sometimes I feel helpless but try to be the best supporter I can be and pray a lot.

Re: Looking for hope

Was in ER today due to severe pain, just did plain X-ray which of course showed nothing which I guess is good. ER doc said he felt it was sciatic nerve issue but referred her to her oncologist as well. Now on Vicodin and steroids and seeing chiropractor. All we can do is wait for the CT scan and pray.

Re: Looking for hope

I hope so, oncologist moved up CT scan from 4 months in future to next month. CEA <0.5 but probably not a good indicator for my wife.
