Topic: A little disappointed
My husband had a resection in November 2011 followed by several months of radiation and chemo but the cancer returned in September 2012. He is now on chemo but we are determined to explore all options so today we met with the radiologist to see if there was anything else he could do. He said the portion of the liver he radiated is cancer-free. However, there are tumors throughout the rest of the liver and there is nothing he can do under when the disease is so diffuse. He said the CT scan also shows some very small masses in the lung and, although these did not light up on the PET, he thinks they may be small metastases. He said chemo is our only treatment option at this point. I really wasn't expecting much from this consultation but it's always disappoining to hear that a doctor can't help.
