SetBack to Report on My Health

Today we went to the Doctor's and met with the Doctor that reads the CT scan and he had a little different take on what he saw. He says that the Tumors in my liver are growing and have now increased enough to make him want to treat them. Not the news we wanted to hear, but we are going to fight this and get through it.

His suggestion is to meet with several other Doctor's and view the old scans with the new one and compare and make sure that he is seeing them correctly. At that point, they will set up an appointment with me to give me Radiation in small glass balls that they will feed directly into my blood stream and have then go directly to my liver. He said this is a very effective way of treating the Liver and thinks this is all that I will need. It will be two treatments, and will take a couple of months to set up and do.
I will keep you updated as I hear more.

I am so sorry to hear this news! I'll add your family to my prayers and to the Denver Temple rolls.

Like Randy said, these are just bumps in the road, one more mountain to climb, but it sounds encouraging from the treamtment stand point.

Good luck to you!

:( But glad it's not worse. Count that as a blessing.

Well, get that radiation going and start fighting! I am glad you got another opinion so that you are doing something about it rather than letting it get worse. We'll keep you in our prayers.
