Rescheduled liver and onion biopsy

My liver biopsy has been rescheduled for Wednesday May 14th. I have promised not to eat before and screw up the procedure for a second time.

What is going to happen is that the interventional radiologist is going to do a "dry" CT scan of my liver to see exactly what is happening with the tumor. If the tumor has grown she will perform the biopsy. If the tumor has shrunk she will more than likely not continue with the biopsy.

If done, the biopsy will hopefully yield valuable information about possible new courses of action as well as the possible effectiveness of new drugs and trials currently available.

In the meantime, I will continue to get the Alimta/Avastin combo every three weeks with the next treatment due Friday May 16th. I will also be getting a full CT scan after the next treatment to see if I continue to positively respond to the current regimen.

Carpe Diem.
