Bowel & liver - now lungs too
After 9 months of chemo, scans, a laparoscopy and a lot of back and forth, I was finally due to go in for stage 2 of the RALPPS procedure tomorrow (2 stage liver resection) combined with Bowel resection and stoma reversal.
I thought I was finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!
Not to be. I was sat waiting to be admitted when the specialist nurse took me to a side room with a Macmillan adviser. They advised surgery not going ahead as MDT this morning raised concerns over lung mets. Scan was 23/12 but I’m guessing delays due to Christmas. So I’ve actually travelled to London from Scotland only to find this out now!
I’ve had “indeterminate” lung nodules from the outset but they never grew or shrunk so my onc wasn’t concerned about them saying unlikely to be mets.
It appears they have now grown or multiplied during chemo break (last chemo 12/9/19) I don’t have full details yet, seeing surgeon tomorrow.
Has anyone had a similar experience with a positive outcome? Is there a possibility chemo could clear lungs and surgery back on table for liver and Bowel?
