So here we are...George (Gee) finished his radiation treatment last Wednesday, January 23rd and rang the bell, very emotional. The treatment was for pin point radiation on his spine on the location of T10 & T5 that were touching his spinal cord. These tumors were very important to be taken care of immediately. If left untreated, it would lead to paralysis. Funny story, while Gee was getting treatment he was put on steroids and pain medication. Well Gee start feeling great, his appetite was back big time, to the point of him eating everything in site and he gained 8 pounds in a week! His energy was improving to the point he actually went to the grocery store with me and we went to the movies! It was great! So when we met with his radiologist Dr Levin & his assistant Karen, Gee was telling him about how great he felt, they both said “well it’s the steroids”! Unfortunately he had to take him off of them because they would interfere with his next plan of moving forward. So since the end of his treatment he has had no pain. God is good! His case was also taken to the spinal tumor board mtg on Jan 17. The results of that meeting were to do what was currently being done on T10 -11 and T5.
The oncology cancer tumor board met on Monday, Jan 21st to discuss the progression in his lymph nodes and left lung nodule. The recommendations were to do immunotherapy and possibly in a trial study. We met with his oncologist, Dr Hwang today, January 28th and she is recommending immunotherapy at this time. This will consist of George coming in every 3 weeks for a treatment, scans & bloodwork. So this is the plan for now and we are waiting for the approval for him to start. Please keep us in your prayers as we are moving forward and marching into battle again hoping to conquer this war called cancer. 🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️
Love to all,
George (Gee) & Dorothy
