In my case, about a year after the liver resection, tumors metastized back to the remaining half of the liver, and, at that time, I was told no more operations could be done. So in subsequent years I've been on 5 clinical trial chemo programs, some which worked for awhile and some which did not work, and 2 surgical procedures -- with the most recent being insertion (in November) through a catheter of radiation beads into the liver -- which stablized tumor growth as seen in a CT scan in December.
The most encouraging thing is that during the time I've had CC new treatments have continually become available.
Jeff G mentions stress and anxiety -- which is my middle name -- long before I had CC. So I deal with that the best I can, but I guess it's just my nature. I'm too impatient to sit around a lot, and I am able to get involved in new and exciting projects which are very stressful but frequently in a positive way, and they also keep my mind off my medical concerns.
Good luck and keep a positive attitude.
