hi my partner is stage 4 lung cancer with liver mets. His last couple of blood tests have shown his albumin and bilibrin and all phos are all abnormal. His oncologist has stopped the treatment (keytruda) until he has had a ct scan. He has turned yellow he hardly eats anything and his feet and legs are swollen. He sleeps nearly all the time his temp is fine and blood pressure is ok. He has the scan on Wednesday and then sees the oncologist on the following Monday. I'm worried that waiting that long might be bad for him as his liver isn't working properly. Has anyone had anything like this? Should I ring the oncology ward I just really don't know what I should do. Any advice or help would be much appreciated thankyou
If you're at all concerned with what's going on I would say, yes, ring up with your concerns. It'll put your mind to rest at the very least
Thankyou I did in the end and they said unless anything drastic changes then I should leave things till Monday and speak to his doctor or the gop
