Calintay Posted February 15, 2005 Share Posted February 15, 2005 I am very sad and feeling very upset over the loss of my best friends mom who passed away this morning at age 43 due to her cervical cancer that had spread to her liver. She was a very lovely lady who will be greatly missed. On the other hand, my mom had her appointment with the surgeon today to see if her tumor had shrunk enough for surgery and it DID! I am so excited. It has shrunk by 1/3 or 33% which to me sounds so great and her surgery is scheduled for March 1st. Questions: A 7 day hospital stay pretty normal? Possible Removal of ribs normal? Her doctor said her feels pretty confident that she can beat this but will not give statistics because he says that they should never go by those. He will remove her upper right lobe, possibly her middle or maybe all of it. He said that this surgery is more serious than coronary artery grafts and some other heart surgeries. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers! Heidi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
