    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    Doctor had check me out and said that I only had canser on my liver. With a liver transplant I would be cured and canser free. My OH NO moment came after transplant, in the hospital recovering. A group of my doctors came in and said,'Transplant was a secess!" but the test showed that I have markers of canser in my Lymphnoids. Stage 4. Every six months I get CT Scans, to see if it has Metastasized any where.

    Liver transplant

    Procedure or Surgery

    The canser on my liver cover 90%. It had calapsed my right lumgs bottom lobe. It had pushed my stomch almost closed. Also, it had logded itself in between my ribs. It took six hours to dislodge the masive groth from my body. The operation should have only been nine hours or less. My operation lasted twelve hours. Recovery was the worest thing I have ever experenced. I was intubated after the surgery. I pulled the tubes out. They were in place to cifine the fluids from my abdomen.
