What's Up With the Doc 53? - No Surgery!

Just a quickie to let everyone know that the orthopedic oncologist feels that the hip metastasis is in a part of the joint (acetabular roof) that actually is not really at risk for fracture and so he thinks it doesn't require surgery. I'm off to see the radiation oncologist on Tuesday to set up radiation therapy to keep it from growing any. This is great news since I won't have to miss any work and won't have to recover from surgery so I'm celebrating this weekend.

Lisa -

Good news! Also, I hope that the cytotoxic chems are dissipating and that you are feeling better and better.
