    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    Was feeling great and humming along in life. I was cleared of NHL stage 4 in April 2012 and followed with a CT scan in July 2012 being symptom free. They decided to check my liver since I've had cirrhosis for 8-10 yrs. Bummer found couple of tumors of Hepatic Carcinoma... onto surgery I go

    Partial liver removal

    Procedure or Surgery

    I was sent to MUSC in Charleston, SC to have a liver resection. They only removed 10% of my liver. Surgeon stated to my wife that if would have know my liver was in the shape it was he would've decided to not do the surgery. I was pretty much bleeding out. They used over 50 units of various blood products not to mention the fluids to sustain my life. Once that was squared away my wife and kids where told the next 24 hrs where going to be critical as to if I would live or not.
