Topic: GREAT 6 month Scans!!!!

I just had great 6 month scans- all good.
For all you fighting there is HOPE. I was given 6-8 months to live, and am now 2 years and 1month cancer FREE!!
To all you starting the fight, seek out a doctor and hospital, expierenced and knowledagble in CC. Please discuss transplantion and have it ruled out by a doctor who believes it is an option. (Mayo and Barnes are 2 of your best sources.)
Lots of prayers-Cathy

Re: GREAT 6 month Scans!!!!

Cathy,
First of all, congratulations!!  You give me great hope for my mom.  Did you have a transplant then?  I asked about doing that at Johns Hopkins (bc I don't really understand why it wouldn't be an option if it was solely in the liver) and they told me they're typically not done for CC.  Can you give me any more details about it?  Thanks!
