Meeting with Radiation oncologist

Today we met with the radiation guy. He was an hour late. Parveen, my aunt and myself were there--full house.

He said what we already knew/suspected and what Dr. A said.
Radiation will/may do more harm than help. The pancreas is sandwiched behind the stomach and small bowel so that causes more nausea when the beams go through those organs.

Radiation only adds a few months to ones life no. He said he's available in the background and meets with Dr. A regularly. He's the "aggressive treatment" guy.

If ever we get to a point where chemo etc. doesn't work, he's there.

Oh well. At least we looked at yet another option.


  1. I'm glad you at least talked to him to figure out what your options are.

    Love you!

  2. Yes i think your boo said it best. It's good to know all of the options and all of the affects- so just in case any other situation ( god forbid) may arise. I don't want your mom to go through the nausea, thats the worst feeling =-( but its good that she's doing/ feeling well with the cooking of the rice and the cleaning and all that. I'm sure she still cracks a few jokes here and there knowing your mom lol.

    Your blog along with many other sites- wsj, nytimes, economist, (perez when i really hate my job) is something that i keep up with every day, so just know that i'm always reading every weekday morning.

  3. I third what Daniel said. I love you guys so very much.
