Topic: Tumor shrinking
Thought I'd post this in the good news section since I finally have something good to post! I went to the oncologist today. Quick recap: I have a liver infusion pump and have recently had a sack of bile form in my abdomen.
I haven't had chemo in about 10 weeks except for 1 dose of Gemzar. I had another CT scan on 12/30 to compare the size of the sack to the CT scan on 12/5.
The good news is not only has the sack shrunk, but my tumor is STILL shrinking, even though I haven't had chemo! Another .5cm in size.
I go to see my surgeon on 1/23 and am going to try not to fixate on it too much. On 12/26 he said he wasn't quite comfortable with the size of the tumor. Now that it's .5cm smaller than the CT scan he was looking at, I wonder what he's going to say. And I have to wait to find out! I can't wait to hear the tumor is small enough, even though having the resection scares me to death.
