What type of chemo has Rob already received? How long ago was last treatment? We were told that nausea and vomiting can occur sometimes 5-7 days after treatment. Is he treating PCa or a secondary cancer? Is he receiving anti-nausea medication with chemo and at home? Have the doctors redone CTs and other tests to verify cancer progression? Does Rob have any pain management plans already in place? Has an MRI of the brain been done?
My husband's cancer is progressing, but the doctor's continue to do tests to gauge progression. They are also very aggressive with pain mangement. Without a signature I am not sure what has been tried so far. Any more info available? I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I an sorry I cannot help more at this time.
