Last month I called an ambulance and I had a 104 fever, blood infection including ecoli (what!!!) and other things and found it was cancer those few hours. In comes what I call
Ms. devil doctor and asks me if I want to start treatment because some people decide to and they have to ask. It was a couple of hours of hearing the news and I'm so sick and had to be revided to ask me that question. Who's thinking, Not Me I was out of my mind. I'm 63 and not ready to give in so fast.

My first Kemo yesterday... went fine. Only sweating like I'd been swimming.
I happy to find this place to join and read...

Hello, my Mother has Angiosarcoma on the liver and I have been trying to find people for her to talk to about it. She was diagnosed two years ago and had been in a deep state of depression ever since. She was been doing embalization treatments and is going in for her third round next week. What types of treatments did you use? Any information you could give me, or advice on what to do for her, please let me know. Thank you

Hi Barbara,

They actually found the cancer first in the spleen, which they removed, and then it moved to the liver. She now has several larger tumors on her liver and about 15 smaller ones peppered throughout the area. She went to the doctor with stomach pain and that's when they found it. None of us had heard of it, and the doctors made the prognosis seem extrememly grim. Like I said she has had it for over two years now, and it's almost like she is afraid that every day will be her last instead of living it.

Did you suffer from fevers at all. Just recently the MRI showed a few more smaller tumors on the liver and for the past week she has been suffering from high fevers. I really really appreciate you getting back to me on this and I will definitely visit your page.

You are in my prayers,
Caitlin
