Topic: surgery on May 13th

I saw the specialist at Princess Margaret Hospital on April 16th said that my liver is now resectable.  The surgery is next Monday and I go for my preop in Toronto in 3 days.  The chemo that I have been on for the last year has shrunk the largest tumor by 75 percent. 

It is definitely good news!

I will keep everyone updated.

That's awesome, what chemo were you on? What type of cancer are you diagnosed with ? gallbladder carcinoma (GBC), intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (IHCC),  hilar cholangiocarcinoma (HCC), also known as a Klatskin tumor or extrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma(EHCC)?
