Hello everyone - recap dx Stage IV with mets to liver and lungs. I am currently in Buenos Aires doing alternative and conventional treatments to beat the beast because I was told in Canada that there was little else that could be done for me. After seven weeks of treatment, I am now scheduled for a liver resection on July 30th. I had given up hope that I could get to the point where surgery was once again a viable option for me, and yet, here I am. Lesson for the day, do not EVER give up. Monica

The surgeon told me after slicing and dicing half my liver that it would grow back in 8 to 10 weeks. It is a very amazing body part!
Good luck on your surgery Monica. We'll keep you in our prayers and be watching for an update.
