My father found out on Thursday that he has 2 small spots on one of his lungs. He had radiation and Chemo (for 3 days) on Friday. Saturday morning they had to tub him, he developed pneumonia. They did an X-Ray yesterday and said that the pneumonia has gotten better. But they cannot remove the tub as of yet. They also did a scope yesterday and found that a tumor is blocking his whole left lung. They cannot continue with the radiation until the tub is removed. They will be doing a CT scan today to see how the tumor and to verify that the cancer has not spread.
My question is, what has been your results with Chemo (with or without radiation) on how quickly a tumor has shrank. Number of treatments, % of shrinking, etc.
Thank you in advance for you help and support.
