Hi my old friends and Folfox club
Well CT/scan showed something on my liver as did a later ultrasound so my oncologist wanted a biopsy. Biopsy of the liver requires the prior ultra sound that establishes "landmarks" like a road map for the radiologist to locate later with another ultra sound and stick in the needle(s) for tissue samples. So off to hospital for biopsy. Put on the backless gown and another IV lay there for three hours and then the Radiologist and even his partner couldn't find what the prior ultra sound and CT/scan says was there. They sure tried. If they had shoved the ulstra sound tool any further into my abdomen it would have come out the other side. Radiologist said I can't biopsy something that isn't there so go home. But my oncolongist is frustrated and wants to find out what is and isn't there. So two days ago I have a Pet Scan. Pet scan shows no cancer anywhere. My CEA less than one; no tumor markers on the blood tests but that only further frustrated my Oncolongist running out of tests. So he's taking the pictures and my fiie to the gaggle of other oncolongists (Gods) that meet every Friday for a recemmendation for treatment? So I guess I'm NED or not.
