More about that other 50%

Professor Morris, the surgeon, is not my friend any more! He is not willing to operate as he says that there is no guarantee that he will be able to reach all the tumours in the lymph nodes.

He recommends 3 months of chemotherapy, which is designed to shrink the tumours in both lymph and liver. This should then make the situation operable.

Hmm. I would have preferred an op only, not 3 months of chemo and then an op. And the chemo is not guaranteed to work anyway! It didn't last time.

I have an appointment with the oncologist on Wednesday afternoon. I'll make another entry here then.

Thanks for reading. And for your supportive comments. No happy pics today!
