Topic: New Dont understand at times!
Hi my name is Martina, & I recently started doing more research & came across this site. Here a lil about myself I am surviving daughter of my daddy that unfortunatley lost his 9week battle with this cancer on Octiber 8,2010. It has been a tough road. My daddy was a 67 yrs old healty (high blood pressur, type 2 diabetes) but overall healthy, saw his primary DR on a regular basis. Prior to being diagnosed he had seen his dr 1 week before that all tests (including liver), came back negative. So needless to say when he turned jaundis on us a week later & i took him to his Dr & tests came back positive for TUMOR & stage 3 we were all shocked, in disbelief, etc. The next p wks were much of a blur I was busy going from dr to dr to specialist traveling to Los Angeles from San Diego, Ca. to see specialist where we finally had hope after being turned down repeatedly for surgery, this Dr said he would but needed to get rid of yellow first & he needed to get stronger ( by now he was tired & weaker (this was month later)), he found a room available in the oncology dept.& was admitted, jaundis a stint was placed 4 days later & immediatley yellow began to disappear, ( San Diego was unsucessful at this attempt). My space running out will continue later. I just people who understand & try & give me answers. RIP DADDY FOREVER MISS YOU!
