Laura’s Latest Update: Reprieve!



Today, the Italian Liver specialist from the Wellington Hospital and Royal Free Hospital in London, has given me a telephone consultation today, after studying my CT scans and history.

He says to me, with great confidence, "Well the first thing we have to do, is put in a stent and drain that bilirubin and get you liver function back'"

"You can do that?" I ask, incredulous.

"It's not dangerous?"

"It's what I do. It's not a problem."

So,I may be admitted to his hospital next week!

And, he can do it in the NHS!

He also works with a renowned OvarianCancer research (trials) specialist with whom he will work.

The whole thing is very exciting and I will know more on Monday or Tuesday.

I am now high as a kite, my friend!

More to come...
