On further test reviews it is decided I am to do chemo first, and maybe down the road surgery.
It is what it is.

Dear Winter Marie, I am so sorry to hear that you won't get your surgery yet.

I know you were up for it.

Having been in this situation before, you know you can get that chemo going and get back to being on the surgery list.

Prayers for you as you start this new part of the journey and that surgery will be sooner than they expect it can be.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Hang in there, lady!! Hopefully the chemo will do the trick quickly and, if you still need it, surgery will not be too far down the road.

Oh that has to be just so frustrating but if the treatment can help you with better surgery odds then that is a good plan. Hoping your treatment goes well for you.

I hate to hear this but know you have it in you to do whatever it takes. Shrink those tumors into submission, you can do it. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Winter Marie.

Just curious if they told you exactly why they feel chemo. would be best first. I'm thinking they want to take the "less invasive" attack on in. Did they feel it was risky because of your recent heart issues?

Hopefully shrink it a little then surgery? Is that the plan? I know how you feel though, I just like to get it out and have surgery right away. Good luck and hopefully surgery soon.

Thank you all for your good wishes and your words, they mean a lot to me.
Saw onc this morning (I showed up at his office to get an appt, as I was tired of two days of waiting for a call)and will start chemo tomorrow, Oxy, Avastin and Xeloda for 3 rounds (once every three weeks) then drop the Avastin the 4th round, then hopefully surgery after 6 weeks or so after dropping the Avastin (depending of course on tumor shrinkage).
The surgery being cancelled had nothing to do with heart, all were willing and able to deal with that (especially since it was "fixed" with a stent) it was due to too many tumors showing up on the PET scan (CT scan showed about 5 fewer).
Okay, on to tumor shrinkage once again, fingers crossed on surgery once again.
Gosh, I HATE OXY and the cold thing...oh well.
