Topic: Anyone have info about IVC and tumor involvement?
When I had my unsuccessful resection attempt, I was told that it was aborted due to the tumor being wrapped around my inferior vena cava.
Does anyone have any information about a situation like that?
I suddenly have this feeling that I could drop dead at any moment. Is that a legitimate worry? Or would the tumor gradually choke off the vein?
My doctors are not too helpful about this, and I'm afraid it is because they don't want to worry me. But I'm the kind of person who will worry more if I don't have a complete and honest picture of the situation.
