Hi, my name is Mitch.
about a year ago, I had surgery to remove my appendix. It was cancerous with goblet cell and signet ring cells present. I had a second surgery and they removed a string of cancer that had traveled from my appendix around the abdomen wall the back of my abdomen and created a tumor about fist sized and one about a silver dollar size. I did 6 months of folfox and enjoyed 6 months of "remission".
Now my CEA numbers are up. I had a CT scan with contrast this morning and am reading my findings. It says "new anterior abdominal cavity small mass with may represent peritoneal carcinomatosis." I also had a fatty liver change.
I have a oncology appointment tomorrow. Just looking for some good questions to ask about how we are going to beat this one.
