Hey everyone....

Well, the CT scan showed fluid around my liver and lungs, so I am having further testing the next couple of days here at Mayo to find out if it's a residual effect from chemo/radiation or if it's cancer. I will update when I know what's going on! :0)

Hey, as I always say..."Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."

Hi Kathy,

Most time fluid is just fluid and I hope that all it is. I'll keep you in my prayers!
Keep us updated.

GOD BLESS

They drained two liters of fluid out of my belly today...two liters!! No wonder I felt and looked bloated!

They're testing the fluid and I'll get results late tomorrow!!! :0)

Cathy,
The first time Charlie had the fluid drained (this was when he was being diagnosed in March) they drained 4 1/2 liters. We thought that was a lot!! 2 1/2 weeks later when he was admitted for his first round of chemo, they had to drain the fluid again. That time it was 7 liters! His nurse was teasing him.....said he looked like Octoman (looked like he was pregnant with 8 babies!!!)
In all seriousness (is that a word??) we are praying for you. Hope your results are good.

Wow, that is quite a bit!! It does make me feel a bit better knowing others have had fluid as well. When I was getting it drained today, the doc told me that a couple days ago they drained 23 liters out of a guy...can you imagine?! 23 liters!!!

Thanks for the prayers!!
