  Surgery finally scheduled for April 7th barring any complications. I see the Oncologist on the March 19th for follow up then the preop team for my instructions on getting ready then report for surgery on the 7th fingers crossed no more problems. But while looking at Drs notes after last Ct scan they are mentioning enlargement of left lobe of liver and saying its possibly chronic liver disease along with the spots on lungs on of which is 1.0 by 0.7 cm in size. Kinda a rough week had to give my pickup to finance company as no income at this time and couldnt make payment now trying to make arrangements to get the 1965 Corvair back here and prep it so I can drive it as its been sitting for three years.

Others on this board have many good pre-and post-surgerory tips, I am sure they will give you few tips.

Consider taking 400 mg of Cimetidin(Tagamet), twice a day. It is over the counter. And there are many studies that it help preventing the spread of cancer during surgery. I took it for 2 more weeks after the surgery. 

Good luck and keep us posted.

it's a big first step on getting back to better health.  And I hope the car issue can be sorted out.  Very challenging not to have reliable transportation, so I'm happy to hear that you have a possible back-up!

PS the cimetidine/Tagamet (brand name) idea mentioned by Laz is a good one...inexpensive, and may help reduce further spread.  Worth trying!
