Scan Results and Good News! 4.4.13

According to my radiologist and oncologist, my liver is now free of cancer. My oncologist has spoken with the surgical oncologist and they are going to increase my chemo dosage and rescan me in 6 weeks. They are doing this for two reasons: 1. Precautionary measure to reduce risk of cancer spreading 2. The goal is to shrink the primary tumor as much as possible pre radiation and surgery. The smaller the primary tumor is, the less invasive the surgery will be. After I get the green light from the doctors in 6 weeks, I will begin radiation immediately and surgery will take place 30-45 days after. I do realize that I still have a long road ahead of me, but today was a victory and I am one step closer! Thank you for all of your texts, calls, and emails.
