As Chris mentioned in one of his previous posts, the first portion of his surgery today was “exploratory”. Essentially the doctors started by using a laproscopic procedure to take a look at the lesions on his liver. This procedure showed that some of the lesions have grown; therefore, the doctor decided it would not be advantageous to do surgery at this time. Instead they will do more chemo to reduce the size of the lesions and then go back in and do the surgery. The good news is that one of the large lesions on Chris’s liver was determined to be non-cancerous.
So Chris is now in recovery where he’ll remain for a few hours and he will be discharged yet today. He’ll meet with his oncologist in the next few days to set up another chemo schedule.
Thank you all for your continuing thoughts, prayers and support.
