Topic: Good scans!
My husband had his resection surgery on 4/21/14 and we had another follow up with the surgeon yesterday. The surgeon said the scans looked good and he should get back in the ocean to surf. The doctor says, "what's good for the mind is good for the liver". He will take it slowly (I hope). We will follow up with him in a few months.
We see the oncologist in 1.5 weeks to finalize the chemo plan, but it looks like it will be three months of gem/cis with scans every three months.
His swelling is still being controlled with diuretics. His only outstanding "side effect" from the surgery is thought to be a hernia in his groin that may be the result of all the fluid he was retaining. (He looked like he was 12 months pregnant at his worst). He will have to have that dealt with once chemo is over.
I'm so happy for good scans and that he is feeling better with each day that passes.
