Hi everyone,

My name is Tom, am 26 and was diagnosed with a tumour in Oct 08. I underwent surgery in November and am currently undergoing a 6 month course of Gemcitabine. Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi!

Hey all,

Just returned home last night after spending four days in hospital following the pain I experienced in my back, legs and shoulders. I have been put back on Tramadol and paracetamol. I waited two (!!!) days for a scan and it showed I have pocket of fluid about 4x4cm near my liver. They are going to monitor it and hope it dissipates itself. They do not want to drain it as it is in an awkward position and getting to it would be tough. Will return to the clinic next week and see how things progess.

Meanwhile, its on with the chemotherapy!

Tom

Tom,

Good luck with the chemo, give 'em hell!

Tom....these post-resection occurences are more then annoying.  The good thing is that they are temporary.  Hoping for the fluid to dissipate in no time.  Get well soon and please, stay in touch.
