Oncologist visit

We visited the oncologist next and was given a treatment plan. Since my cancer has progressed to my liver the original spot in my rectum was secondary now. We will start with the chemo regimen and then look at operating. I'm hopeful that they will be able to re sect some of the liver. I may be eligible for a trial drug as well. What the heck I have nothing to lose so sign me up. I had a pet scan set up and went thru that yesterday. I had to drink the barium and be injected with a radioactive tracer. This will help the docs see my disease in a new light. I am scheduled to go in on Monday for a biopsy and get my port installed. The port is the chemo delivery system. Wow! Not what I expected...
