Topic: happy holidays

Well all I had a good first day back at chemo. It's been about a month! The doc went over my latest scan and was happy with the results. Rather then continuing chemo or onto the y90. She is feeling encouraged and more hopeful and wnts to take my case back to the board for surgery consult. This is the first time she has ever brought this up. She is happy with how things are going and while the right side with the tumor is shrinking she said the left is kind of expanding and its all from what they can tell healthy tissue. So sounds like the debate will be d I have enough good tissue if the right is resected. I'm just so happy she is considering this now as a possible option. I'm also still going to seattle for a surgical consult as well.

Hope, love, strength...2013 and for the years to come, Porter.

Re: happy holidays

Hi guys I realized this posted twice.  Thanks for the support all.  I do understand that there is still a big possibility that the surgeons can say no go. But I am still happy with the fact that she brought up the word surgery and wanted to take my case back to the tumor board.  I just started my 7th cycle and we will go a full 8.  I should find out in about 2 weeks what the review board decides.  I will keep you all posted.  Thanks.  Happy New Year. smile
