CT scan showed encapsulated liver tumor smaller than MRI showed. I was told first almost 8 cm but now told its a bit more than 6. I get mapped for the radioactive beads they will inject thru my groin and veins to the tumor then they inject them. First time is a trial with non radioactive particles to see if any enter the lungs or stomach or bowel. If not next they redone this but with radioactive beads. I will be awake. It takes 3 hours to perform then recovery room for 3 hours. The surgeon seems quiet concerned about me bleeding out and my liver shutting down. Yesterday I saw the transplant doctor. She said CT scan shows two nodules on my lungs. They have to investigate. I now must see Oncologist about the tumors. I had to get that news alone. The person taking me in to see my docs did not wake on time so I had to drive myself in. My mind has shut down. I cannot speak or talk. First procedure is in a bit more than a week. Aloha
