Well, the PET scan showed more tumors lungs and liver , and after PET and ultrasound they still don't know where the 3.3 cm mass is hiding, apparently outside the colon, not in ovaries, so sitting here waiting on CT Scan. So new surgery date is Thursday, they still will operate. Thank goodness.

So very glad you are still a candidate for the surgery. Will it just be for the liver or will they perhaps go after the elusive 3.3 cm mass as well?

I hate to see it delayed as you were all set for it, but better the short delay than not to happen at all.

Hugs and wishes for best news.

Marie who loves kitties

Just love your spirit and drive that this path has given you. You shine girl :)

It's always an adventure, isn't it? It sounds like some of this is good news (cancer NOT being in ovaries).
Here's to a very successful surgery and a speedy recovery.

It sounds like you have a good group of docs that want the best for you and are going to go for it. I'll keep up the prayers.

Aloha,

I don't understand you said it was a 3 cm mass but it's hiding?? did it show up on one scan and now they can't locate it?? Where did it originally show up, I'm thinking liver...but now they can't find it?? Will they do open surgery or laproscopic?

I had one two years ago that was huge...lots and lots of cancer taken out. Spent two weeks in the hospital, which wasn't at all fun, but it was a huge success. Made the difference between life and death for me. It sounds to me like there is still plenty of hope for a great surgery and great results for you. Many hugs~Ann Alexandria
PS I had one tumor that was just sitting in the abdominal cavity, stuck in between the rectum and the ovary. I wonder if you might have something similar going on? They couldn't tell exactly where it was until they got in there. Mine was about 3 cm and they were able to remove it.

They know it's there, just not what in? I guess one could say. At first it was thought to be ovaries, but it isn't there, thought to be in colon, but isn't there, so it's in the pelvic area, possibly touching the colon (which is why surgery is now Thursday, they are putting the colon surgeon on standby)and may need a colon resection as well if it is touching. What it's hanging onto in the pelvic area, I do not know.
Thank you for all your kind wishes, I'm am happy to have each prayer, etc., sent my way.
