Topic: MRI scan didn't confirm laparoscopy results

Hi all,

Yesterday,  I spent 7 hours at a "special" MRI lab that specializes in liver scans -- they ended up scanning my pelvis and lungs as well since we were getting along for such a long time. Unfortunately they didn't confirm the clean peritoneal laparoscopy results I had receive 6 weeks ago.  It looks like the tumors are still there, though hidden behind adhesions and organs  and getting a bit bigger.  I hadn't had chemo in 3 months.

I am disappointed, but not surprised as I have been having quite a bit of pain lately and have had decreased appetite.

So, the radiologist, oncologist and surgeon are going to consult with each other and then I will find out what the next options are.

G.  So sorry to hear this.  When you were mentioning the "special" MRI were you refering to a 3D MRI?  Crossing my fingers for a new, great plan of action.

That is so disappointing - part of the "roller coaster ride" we all got for free when we joined these ranks, I suppose. I hope for a great new plan from your "gurus'. Sending good thoughts your way.

Hi G....Sorry to hear the sneaky little tumors were hiding on you.  At least you know were to attack.  Keep your chin up and keep on dancing.
