Re: Jim Kelly announces that he has cancer
It appears that Kelly's infection has been contained. Therefore, his chemo/radiation treatment has been able to be started. Today, he has completed his first of three rounds of chemo.......over the next 6 weeks, he will complete the other two (three weeks apart) and undergo daily radiation treatments. After that, they will re-evaluated as to the need for surgery, if the other treatments have not been felt to control the cancer. I don't know that I would even consider surgery in an area that has already been scarified by previous surgery.....and whose blood supply has been further extremely compromised by radiation treatments............wound healing in such a case would be high risk for complications.........without likely changing the ultimate prognosis. Here's to seeing the miracle we're all praying for.
