We met with Kathy Pritchard Jones, Christian’s consultant yesterday. We have had various tests done this week ahead of the intensive chemo next week. All the results were as we hoped, with no spreading of the cancer to any other bones in the body. We are being admitted to the Marsden on Wednesday 25th, Christian will have a daily dose of the same two drugs that he has already taken as well as a one off intensive dose of a different one. He will need an NG tube in his nose as he will be very nauseous and will probably not want to eat or take any of the medicines that he will need, that will probably be put in on Wednesday.
We also discussed the next stage of his treatment that will be radiotherapy, he’ll need a daily dose to his leg for two weeks. As he is unlikely to stay still it means that he’ll need a general anesthetic each time. The effected area is not close to the growth plate of the bone but there is still a danger that it may slow down the growth in that leg.
