I went for a second opinion and this doctor is working with my current ONC now. They are going to take out my spleen by cutting off the blood supply and letting it die. It should be an overnight procedure - same day if the pain isn't bad. Has anyone had this?
This is good news if it brings my platelets back up so I can get regular dosages of chemo. The platelets have really interferred with that. I asked the doctor if there was a chance of remission if I get on regular chemo and he said no. I don't get it. I know I have a lot of cancer in my body but I thought that getting regular chemo would help with that.
