Got the resuts of my MRI scan
« on: June 17, 2020, 12:39:00 AM »
Up to the royal again yesterday to get the results of my MRI scan. They have found another small tumour on my liver and plan to review it in November with yet another MRI scan followed by another TACE treatment which is most uncomfortable and takes quite a while. It involves entering the Femoral artery, pushing a catheter up into the liver, placing a strong dose of chemo directly into the tumour then blocking the blood supply to it. Oh by the way you are still conscious through the whole procedure!! I might need to get this done sooner than November though if the result of the blood test they did shows a high reading cancer wise!! Wish me luck ladies and gents.

 Keep at it John, my wife went through all this shit, and she is nipping my head tonight, there is light at the end of the tunnel, so hang in there and think about getting out in the fresh air swinging your detector, digging the next signal on the hope it could be gold.

Many thanks for your comments all. I can imagine the liver surgeon, the surgeon who deals with my bladder cancer and the doctor who is dealing with my lymphatic cancer all having a bet on what will kill me first!! It will maybe an outsider though like my wife!!! ::)

Hang in there John, you've been through the mill but kept a brave face on things, your a fine example to us all. I'm just recovering from a heart attack and one or two other minor ailments and am astounded by the amount of attention I have received from the NHS. If anyone thinks all they are fixing in hospitals is this dammed virus then they are sadly mistaken. I certainly can't complain about the service I have had and once again I take my hat off to the staff in every caring situation . See you in a field some time.

Hi Sandy, so sorry to hear you had a heart attack but at least you are still breathing!! I agree the NHS do a fantastic job and I have no complaints over the way I have been treated. Hope you get back to full fitness soon, I know how much a heart attack knocks the stuffing out of you but take each day as it comes and you will soon regain your strength and get back to normal. Will see you in a field one day Sandy.
