So much for Brandon having a week off between chemo treatments. He has been having an issue with what we think is part of the surgical mesh they used in his abdominal wall reconstruction last November, so we went to see the nurse practitioner yesterday. She wants him to see his surgical oncologist to get his take on what’s going on with that, so we have that appointment first thing Wednesday morning. She thinks something may have shifted due to the amount of weight Brandon has lost. She also had his CT scan moved up to today so the surgical oncologist would be able to look at it before he sees Brandon tomorrow morning. On top of having appointments three days in a row on his “off” week, he’s not feeling great. He’s having pain and nausea more often than not, and the extreme fatigue and weakness make the daily appointments difficult for him.
We’re not sure what the surgical oncologist will share tomorrow as far as scan results. He may just talk about what he sees relating to the issue with the past surgery, then we will have to wait until the appointment with the medical oncologist next week to hear what is going on as far as the cancer is concerned. Hopefully, he will share enough for us to have a good idea of what we will be hearing next week.
We are all praying for some positive news!
