Starting over

I am going in for a Liver biopsy today to see what is going on in the same spot where my liver resection removed the lesion in July. My PET scan done 2 1/2 months post op showed uptake their at the same liver site and apparently a lymph node was showing some uptake during the PET.

Going to also go back to MAYO clinic and get a thorough Oncology review and yhen talk to surgery about options as well. Eventually a plan will gel. I cope better when I have a plan. Waiting stinks. Gotta keep moving forward or I will just be standing still.

Update you all when I know more.

....that stinks Mike, about starting over, and I know what you mean about not having a plan, I don't even know what happens to me after my 12th round of chemo.

I just hope everything will turn out right, and hopefully that biopsy will turn out to be nothing! Good Luck at Mayo, you'll be in my prayers, and thoughts and hopefully the oncs will come up with one heck of a great plan for you~

I know that with a plan you know what you will be facing and then can move forward. I wish you well with your upcoming tests and appointments.

Keep moving forward is right, make it a great day! That is one of our choices. I am so sorry you are having to go thru more. But you are doing exactly as you need to, making sure things gel. If something doesn't gel, you ask and ask and reask again. Thank gosh for choices, just like a smorgasbord; we may not like everything they offer but we are free to choose anything on the table. Make life happy, move forward get over the being angry so you can make time for the good stuff. Lots of thoughts, hope and prayers your way.
Make it a Great Day!!

So sorry to hear that you have to go through this again. Dick has been just a month or so behind you on this journey and he is starting chemo again soon. I know the sinking feeling and then the hope when there is a plan. You are moving in the right direction.
Keep us posted, we care about you.

Hey Mike

I know what you mean - I went back to my surgical onc and went back over things to make sure we all were on the same page, so I could get the feeling I needed to do this surgery.

Best of luck and just stay with it!

Thanks for all the positive feedback, A plan is forming and I will attack it with renewed vigor.

I am strong and have great support at home and here with all of you. Bless you all
