I have a recurrent primary liver cancer.Been first diagnosed in Sept.04 and had ressection in Feb 05.;After 2 yrs of remission, latest ctscan done in Dec.06 showed two smaller lesions(3cm)in place of the old big one(10cm)I had before. Through all of these, I did not tell my kids (10,11,14 yrs.old)about my illness. All they know is that something is wrong with my liver.I had my chemoembolization last month and is under evaluation for a liver transplant. The social worker i talked with suggested that i tell my kids about it, but i don't know how to break it to them, and im not even sure if i really need to tell them. I don't want them to be scared , worried, or be distracted from their innocence and peace. I want them to concentrate on and enjoy their young lives.But i want them to understand me of my moods and needs, too.Any help in this matter, pls?And what are the prospect of liver transplantation?Thanks for any help. And my prayers to everybody who are in the same boat with me. Let us fight with Faith in God and fight with all the love we have for our dear ones. May the Force be with us!
