Topic: Good 2 year check up!
I want to share my good news story! 26 months since my extrahepatic cc resection at Mayo, my blood work is great and my MRI shows "no definite return of cc." Yay! I do have "stable prominent lymphadenopathy" which is perplexing to my surgeon and oncologist, but had a benign biopsy 5 months ago so the doctors aren't too concerned. Also have "probable infectious/inflammatory biliary thickening and enhancement". I felt better before I read the radiologist's report, but am happy I don't need to be seen for 6 months. Question: I had a hernia repair with ventral abdominal mesh repair. Have any of you heard of mesh causing lymphadenopathy? A good friend of mine who is an internal medicine physician said she had read some studies stating the mesh can cause enlarged lymph nodes. Also, do any of you have IPMN's in the pancreas, because I have those too.
I feel very fortunate! Bless all of you who are dealing with this awful cancer!
