Here's an update for TEAM TRISKELE/ TEAM PAULA:

As mentioned previously, one of the lesions is too close to the stomach, so my images had to be reviewed more closely, and in greater detail. This is why it was taking so long.

The required distance (between the stomach and the tumor) to SAFELY do radio frequency ablation on that tumor...... is one centimeter.

The tumor next to the stomach..... is exactly one centimeter away from the stomach.

SO.  THE ANSWER IS YES!!

That kind of sounds like a miracle, or an answer to prayer, or the intervention of the spirits..... whatever you want to call it, it's just that close...

And another cool tidbit.... Radio frequency ablation uses microwave technology.

My mom, back in the late 40s/early 50s, used her electrical engineering degree to get a really great job in downtown Chicago, working with a company that was in the first stages of developing microwave technology, as well as the first computers.

I never thought that my mother, who passed away in 1996, liked me very much..... but maybe she does. LOL!

Now we wait for that doctor's office to call and schedule the consultation, and the ultra sound.
And...we breathe......

Thanks for your good thoughts.

One of the lesions is too close to the stomach, so may not be "eligible" for radio frequency ablation. The other one probably IS eligible.
There are, however, two alternate procedures that are still being considered for the one that is too close to the stomach. One of those procedures is chemotherapy embolization. If you're interested, you can google it.
The other one is something I never heard of until today, while I was walking around in the grocery store (which was when my nurse called me), so I have no idea what that it even is.

Regardless, the good news is that my case is STILL UNDER CONSIDERATION, my MRI will be reviewed AGAIN, and at least we know SOMETHING now, as opposed to not knowing anything for over 2 weeks.

 

That's right. Knowledge is power. FUD creeps in when knowledge is absent. Hey, if your oncologists have to use a coupla different therapies to zap your lesions, that just means you get to learn more about medicine and add a few twists to your war stories.

Okay, Team Paula/Team Triskele...
Go look up Radio Frequency Ablation.
Unfortunately, it does NOT, in fact, mean that I will be able to pick up radio stations with my liver..... dang it.
This is the technique that my oncologist believes I am a perfect candidate for.
It kills the cancer with the direct application of microwave radiation.
This would be a "one and done" treatment. It's not like the radiation treatments that patients have to go to every day for a month or what have you.
The lesions are small enough, and there are only two, so this makes me a perfect candidate.
My team is sending the discs from this week's CT and MRI scans over to the doctors who do this procedure, for THEM to decide if I am as good a candidate for this treatment as my doctor thinks I am

SO NOW, we focus ALL of our energy on YES, and on GETTING IT DONE!

I feel SO encouraged! Thank you all for your love, prayers, hopes, and strength! I love you all!
