Can't reply to the old thread, since it is gone, so I am starting a new one. (Dad was diagnosed with Advanced colon cancer in Nov. 2017, and had emergency surgery to remove part of his colon, and then had chemo. The cancer spread to his liver, and he has since had six ablations to remove tumors in his liver. The last was one month ago on the 2nd of April).

Results just came back form his follow-up scan yesterday . . . there is another tumor in the same area. Not sure if it is brand new growth or was missed last month (remember, it was so big, it was marginal as to whether the procedure would remove it all). Mom called Cleveland Clinic and the results have been sent to the Doctor who does the procedures, so we are waiting to hear back on that. I'll post when we know more!

Thanks for all the prayers and notes! They really mean a lot!
God Bless,
Elizabeth

Just a quick update here . . . the doctor is consulting with another radiologist before making a decision on how to proceed. We're just praying that they will be comfortable with another ablation and not need the full surgery.

Thanks to everyone for all the prayers and thoughts!

An update here . . . There is another tumor there, right near the last one (or possibly part left from before). They are going to schedule another ablation, but we don't have a date for that yet. Thanks to everyone for the thoughts and prayers!
