Topic: Intro , I suppose
Hello all. Jon from the Uk (London) "peripheral" CC is my diagnosis , though that doesn't seem so rare on this site , ( tumour in liver ). I was discovered by accident and as yet have no symptoms. Can anyone say what that means ? Is it tumour size or length of time that gives the problem ? I have been told that it's incurable , although links on this site suggest there is always hope surgery-wise.
I was only diagnosed this March , and am having trouble differentiating between what feelings I have are treatment related (Gemcitabine ) or symptom related.
I recall a consultant from 3 months back saying that if they hadn't discovered it then , that I would have symptoms now , but who knows ?
For the record , I,m 3 months into chemo ( 6 month course ) and the latest scan shows a "stable" tumour ,( NO , SHRINK YOU B**G*R).
Words of encouragement gratefully accepted
