and we are still reeling from the news. The doctor said it was Hepatocellular carcinoma. The tumor on her liver is about 5 inches.
I'm so frustrated because she had the liver biopsy on Thursday, but didn't get a diagnosis till Tuesday and now we have to wait a week and a half to get her in to see a surgical oncologist in N.C. The oncologist here told her doctor that he would see her but she really needed to see a surgical oncologist.
We have so little information. We don't get it. She's never drank or smoked, we have no family history and she doesn't have hep B or C.
Do you all have any advice on how to stay strong and help her make the decisions she needs to make? I'm a journalist so I've been researching the doctors she's been referred to but that's all I really know how to do. Neither me nor my brothers live in town.
