    Congratulations Betsy! Keep the positive outlook. I believe it is key to long term success. I have not posted on the board for a long time. My wife Dawn was diagnosed with a Klatskin

    I also hope and pray your good health continues!

    Where did you go that the oncologist recommended against chemo or radiation? (sorry if you said already).

    Your news is great to hear! Here’s to continued good news.

    Hi Suzannegm,

    No, I haven’t received any chemo treatments. The tumor was completely removed (with a 1″ clear margin) and had not spread to lymph nodes or other organs. My surgeon sent me for a consult with an oncologist regarding prophylactic chemo but the oncologist advised against it. So, I just hope and pray that my good health continues. I will continue with monthly labs and frequent CAT scans.

    Wow! Another Miracle Woman! I really think our good results have been at the fore front lately. Could CC be getting scared of our “Family”. I sure hope so.

    Today marks the one year anniversary of my liver resection. This time last year, I was on the operating table. My latest CAT scan (yesterday) was clear and all of the numbers on my labs are normal. I am thankful and lucky to be alive and well. I will have to continue on several medications and return in April for my next CAT scan.
