Hi, my name is Nancy.. I am a 46 year old woman, married with a 10 year old daughter. In November 2004, I was having trouble keeping down my food.. seemed as the day wore on the more nausea and vomiting I had. I went to my Dr who sent me to a Surgeon. He suspected I had Diabetic periasis (spelling). The surgeon sent me to have a CT scan and the next I knew I was being called to his office. He told me that I had a large tumor that was on my liver. Within a week I was in surgery at the Medical Unniversity of SC. The 15 pound tumor and 2/3 of my liver were removed on Dec 8th. Its been a long time healing due to a open incision. I never thought I could be so weak. I am now seeing a Oncologist who is going to be starting chemo to make sure that all the cancer was removed. He said it would be about a 6 month course..
I am looking for anyone in a simular situation or someplace I can talk to others with the same problems..
My Drs were surprised I got such a cancer as I have never been more then a casual drinker and do not have hepatitis..
