I saw my oncologist today. The reason that he said that it is inoperable is that there are 2 tumors in different lobes. The report also states that there are another 1-2 very small tumors that are probably cancer.
As of tomorrow I am on disability. My hours at work aren't flexible and I work with infants so it's probably for the best, though I'll miss it. The good thing is that I'll get to spend more time with my children and grandchildren.
He wants to put me on Folfox 6. I am having a port put in next Tuesday and will start chemo the following Tuesday.
I still plan to get a 2nd opinion, either at UCLA or City of Hope, hopefully before I start chemo.
I also plan to look into alternatives, but in addition to chemo. Sorry Emily!
This weekend I am going on my first cruise. It has been planned for a long time, though I'm not sure how I feel about going right now. Hopefully it will do me good to get away for a few days.
Thanks to everyone who responded to my post! You really helped.
