Surgery Review and More Chemo

Over the last week our surgeon (Ravikumar) has been reviewing the scans from the 28th July with our oncologist (Moriarty). Today we got a call from Ravikumar's office and spoke to the nurse there.

Essentially he's very happy with the progress and it is significant progress since January. On the down side he recommended 3 more months of chemo followed by a PET scan and another consultation. That will bring us to November.

Whilst it's great news of course that the scans are so good, I can't shake the pit in my stomach at the thoughts of 4 more rounds of chemo with no real knowledge of what lies at the end of it.

We're meeting with Moriarty in person on Friday to discuss in detail and hope to get clarification on what has been discussed. I have a lot of questions. We're going to ask for a 2nd surgical opinion from another doctor we've been researching.

Karen has been a trouper and amazingly strong throughout the day and once again I'm leaning on her instead of the other way around.

Get the most out of the Chemo...Then take the next step... I like the logic... but know your anguish...
