Clint and I went in for his pre-surgical consult today with Dr. Lin at U of M. A couple of hours earlier he had a CT scan. All seemed well as we went over procedures and questions for the scheduled Oct. 9 surgery. Then Dr. Lin came in and said there were problems seen on the CT scan. 1) Clint has a small pulmonary embolisum which must be treated with twice daily shots to thin his blood followed by insertion of a screen to prevent any clots from moving into his lungs, heart or brain. Even worse, a spot not seen on the previous CT scan shows up on his liver (7mm). He will have a MRI on Monday evening possibly followed up with a liver biopsy. Dr. Lin said that if it is cancer, surgery is no longer an option.
Clint has been feeling fine and gaining weight.I just finished my own radiation and felt we were finally on a more positive path. If anyone has suggestions or experience please let me know. Joan
