Thanks to each of you for replying. Hearing what you have had to say is comforting even tho I know it hasn't been easy to cope with all that you have gone through. I feel like each day I have with my husband is a gift and it gives me hope that there will be a whole lot more of them.
tillyden, hope you are doing ok. Have they set up a date they are going to do your surgery? The first resection my husband had he did really well and we were so new to all of it and I was so relieved that I didn't think of it coming back (or at least not so quickly) I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
ktee, thanks for the information on what they do once they are in the operating room. I will definately ask the surgeon how he is planning to check his liver for additional cancer. I hope your husband is doing well and will continue to do so. It is encouraging to hear that even tho your friend has had to have several procedures, it has been 10 years. I think that is wonderful news.
christy217, it is very encouraging to hear of someone that has stage iv still surviving for 8 years. Thank you for telling me this. When this first began and before I finally found this website, I would read everything I could find on the survival rate of stage iv and for such a long time I felt like we were fighting a downhill battle. Just knowing that more and more people are surviving this has helped so much.
Thank you again. I hope you are all doing well and will continue to do so. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.
