Hi all, I've got a question here - would like to hear different peoples opinions. My father (passed away in 2005) had Multiple Myeloma since 2000. Anyway, after the initial chemo for 5 odd days (a bombardment at the star of the treatment), he then had to have some radiation to the localised area (the cancer tumour was in the femur). Anyway, he had the sessions - about 8 or 9 from memory. Towards the 5th or 6th session, he explained to his radiation oncologist that he was having quite a bit of pain in the area. Regardless of this, she went ahead and gave him the full 8 or 9 sessions (without altering the timing of the remaining sessions etc). The end result was that he was unable to bend his leg more than about 5-10degrees - it was like this until he passed away. When looking at the thigh, there was a big area of 4in x 4in just black - like it was charred (his skin colour was light brown). I would like to hear peoples opinions on why this might have happened - if you need more information please ask. Its something that I would really like to address .... the issue is in my mind - and of course the rad. onco never explained why it happened ("just one of those things Tony") she said. Obviously she wouldnt ever admit if/what was the mistake for legal reasons, but I would really like to hear from people in the know about what could have gone wrong.
