Addie Posted February 11, 2005 Share Posted February 11, 2005 Talk about knock me over with a feather. All this stomach distress may be related to the pancreatitis....but it's because I have mets in my liver, pancreas and spleen. The good news is that my onc says if the cells are this "active" they should respond well to chemo. Maybe buy me some good remission time. A cure now, though....is out of the question. I'll have a biopsy on Tuesday and then likely start chemo asap, altho he didn't say what the chemo might be. He'll wait for the biopsy results...but this all looks like mets, not a new primary. After a clean scan on Jan. 3rd, and a clean ultra sound two days ago..I really was NOT anticipating any of this to be cancer....despite not feeling very well for the past month. But according to the head radiologist, none of this would have shown up on a scan or U/S. It DID show up on the MRCP I had today, which is an MRI of that area of the gut. There are....several lesions in my liver he said. I'm still absorbing this. I'll fight....but this just wasn't what I expected. The onc says he figures a few cells escaped the chemo and made their way to the liver, etc. via the bloodstream. Please...if you've got a few good wishes to spare...I could use them. Of course, you know you all have mine. I know I'm not the only one with bad news lately. It's a lousy trend, I must say. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
