Topic: Update from new patient visit at U of M
Well, I don't have a lot of great news to report. I found out today that I have advanced andeocarcinoma stage 4. The stage 4 comes from the cancer metastasizing inside my liver. Dr zalupski is positively the sweetest Dr. With an amazing bedside manor. He has so much compassion for his patients. He was very straight fcorward with me in saying thant I cannot be considered for surgery or transplant at this time due to the size of the main tumor. The other satellite tumors are about 1 to 2 cm. and it appears the chemo is starting to react to the tumors with the shrinkage.
I know I have much to be thankful for, but I felt let down after the appointment today, I guess I was expecting some magic cure to change the course I am on. Unfortunately I learned that this is a very rare cancer and prayers and a miracle are truly the only cure .God bless everyone and forgive me for
any negative comments. Just struggling right now!!!
