Topic: Great news
I will be forever thankful to this board as I would have never found Dr. Kato. He successfully removed the tumor, half the liver, gallbladder and resected the hepatic artery and portal vein AND got clean margins. There is no doubt in my mind that you saved my mother's life.
Dr. Kato recommends post op chemo, but I cannot discuss this with mom yet as she is only 6 days post op. She sailed through the 9 hour surgery with one day in ICU and she will leave step down when a bed becomes available. The care she is receiving at Columbia Presbyterian is outstanding. Dr. Kato is the most humble man I have ever met. He s truly a gift from God.
I haven't been much of a contributor on this site, but I pray for all of the people on this site suffering from this awful disease.
