Topic: Dad's Clear 1 Year- Post Surgery CT

Hello all,

Although I don't post often, I "lurk" frequently and thank everyone for all of the information they post!

I wanted to share some uplifting news - one year post surgery, there is no sign of recurrence of my Dad's cc!  He had his surgery performed by Dr. Myron Schwartz (at Mt Sinai in NYC) in October 2010 (lobe removal, portal vein resection, gallbladder removal).  He had chemo (Gemzar/Cisplatin) with Dr. Randall Holcombe (also at Mt Sinai) from December 2010 through the first week of April 2011.

CT performed today & we just heard the news, so I thought I'd share such happy results & hope everyone gets the same!
