 Was diagnosed with liver cancer first of May. I been suffering from fatty liver cirrhosis for 7 years and been having bi annually cancer scans. In January it came back negative however with severe abdomen pain and a trip to the ER I was diagnosed with PVT. Then right before I was discharged to go home, the doc come in the room with the infamous I need to talk to you in privacy speech. Even though I always feared and expected that day, it still through me for a loop.

  Looks like I not only have  PVT to deal with, but a 4.5 tumor in my liver to deal with. In July had the Y 90 done and this week a cat scan to see if the PVT has a tumor growing with it as well. End of this month a mRI to determine if the tumor was shrunk or destroyed by Y 90. In order to get on a transplant list. Of course if the PVT proves to have a tumor the ball game changes. 

  I'm pissed, saddened and distraught by my situatioN. I don't sleep much anymore. I want to beat this thing. I have too much left to finish on this earth.

I feel educating myself about this process and converse with people who have been here and done this gives me the best chance of beating this. I will also pass info of my progress to help others.

  Thank You.

    My friend was just diagnosed today with liver cancer. I don't know any details yet. He has had severe fluid build up in stomach and has had to have his stomach pumped at least once a week for the past month. I will be trying to find out any information that I can. If I find something that looks promising, I will send it to you.

    Thinking of you...
