Grandfathers liver cancer update

Well... I havnt posted here in a good long 4 months.... And there's plenty of updates

My grandfather has liver cancer in his right lobe close to his main artery. Well, he's been having chemotherapy since october to shrink the tumor, so it won't be so close to the artery. After countless CT scans and MRI's within the past 3 months (i'd say about 6 give or take a few) they are still undecided about how close it is. The surgery is scheduled for the 21st of this month, but one more MRI will be done, because they want to be 100% sure on this matter....

He's still very healthy by the way, he still has his massive hunger, and plays golf weekly.. hes gained a few needed pounds, so he doesn't look so.... thin anymore..

All n' all... the prognosis looks very bright for him

Re: Grandfathers liver cancer update
