Hello to all,
Well, I am home from the rehab hospital. I've been there since May 1, after my hospitalization at Hopkins and subsequent surgery on my R hip (cancer and arthritis ate through my bones there) and on my L hip (same scenario, just not as bad.) I spoke with my oncologist today and here's the plan. I will see my surgeon next week and talk to my radiation oncologist. We will couple that with xeloda, which is one of the few meds that she says can be used with radiation. For now, we will not be pursuing any other local treatment, such as for my liver. She wants me on systemic treatment ASAP.
Fingers crossed that xeloda goes smoothly. Even though I spent 3 weeks in the rehab hospital, I'm still a mess. Walking with a walker, lots of precautions, etc. to enable the hip to heal.
