JFL so well put. I really feel that they are caring. We've been fooled many times, it discourages you, but this guy had all the depts. that could help her get in touch with us, and set up an array of appointments.
Blubird they did not put Dani to sleep, so sorry you had such bad experience, i don't think it should have been.Thx for the help w Faslodex.
NO102Nov I think it took like 10 days or so. You could actually call yourself F1 give them the info, they would speak directly to you. Zar is absolutely right. I called, sent them the POA from my DD to me, and they had no trouble in sending me the info.
Zar how was the treatment on typhoon day?
Grannax thanks for checking.
I was so wiped out last night, i went to sleep 9sh!! Ok i took 2 ambien in middle of the night, i did not want to think.
If i am wiped out i cannot imagine Dani, but she will NOT complain. It went very well. they were all terrific with her. But their faces when they spoke to me, spoke volumes. They - the nurses, Fellow they could not believe the amount of damage they saw. IR was a bit more reserved, but he told me also.
They do the angiogram, to see the hmmm architecture of the liver, they do the mapping, the same as when regular radiation to the rest of the body is done,then they send the person to Nuclear Medicine, they do a SPECT scan, it's very detailed 3D scan, they check if a person has no shunts or something not allowing the radiation to pass to the right places or worse that the radiation ends up where it should not.
So the results for her is that she is a candidate. So we were happy. You know when my kids were little and the doc said yep it's strep, i knew hey this is not a good thing, but i was so happy because i knew- ok, let's get that antibiotic and it will all be well, so something like this here, i know (we know) it's a tough procedure but it could help her.
IR said that there is no question it has to be done, otherwise any treatment that needs to be metabolized through the liver is not gonna work, the liver is really jeopardized.
BUT, it's scheduled ONLY for the 3rd. He is not in the Hospital that week only Friday. It might work out for her because she needs to get the other Rads and they did not want her to have a break, (she would need to stop on the day of theY90), like this if it's on a Friday ( e/o is fooling themselves, and just letting it go, knowing that Sat/Sunday there are no Rads here anyway). So RO agreed that she could start this Thursday.
BabyRuth thanks for the heads up with your experience, she really cannnnnnnot afford 6 weeks recup no way!. I could distract the kids a day, two but they need her up and around. As is, her sibs are helping out, but still trying to get things running at home.
I'll try to get the report tomorrow, we'll see the new Neuro, then i'll see what they really saw.
I'll definitely keep you guys in the loop.
You are all really my backbone.
