Dad's Embolization 2010

Dad is back in the hospital with metastasis in his leg and arm. Apparently they only scanned his torso and head before instead of a full-body scan. What? If any of your family members go through this, know that you are responsible for their care. You cannot just trust what the doctors and nurses are doing.

Update: One of the leg tumors was embolized providing pain relief and lessening the danger of rupture. Other tumors will be treated with the same kidney cancer drug (Sutent) as the other tumors that we already knew about.

Oh, Ericka, so sorry your dad is having a hard time. I completely and absolutely agree with your comments about how the family is responsible for care. It doesn't matter if you know nothing about hospitals, doctors, nurses, rehab centers or whatever disease - you will learn, and sometimes the hard way. xo
