Re: renee_ky

Thanks for asking! So far it is going pretty well. The chemo is not so bad this time, because he is taking VP 16 orally, each morning at home. The radiation seems to be bothering him a little, maybe his trachea, he is coughing much more than before. Within the last couple of days, he has regained his appetite and he said he feels like the left lung is starting to open back up. That is good!

The radiologist said that they will do a CT scan on Monday to see if and how much progress they are making on shrinking the tumor in the left lung, and keeping it from spreading any further into the right lung.
