I am full of questions. My doctor yesterday was telling us about the differences in treatment in US and Europe, a guess this is one of them.
When is the biopsy scheduled? It's hurry and wait isn't it?
BTW where in Norway are you? My husband used to live there and we have visited.
Thanks! The ileo reversal was planned in two months, but will be after the lung operation, I might have to do mop up chemo after that as well, it will depend on the type of tumor or resection margins I guess, but the gastroenterologist said they will need a new meeting with the oncologist to decide that.
The bladder is going better, but I still use a catheter before to go to bed, because the bladder is not totally emptied. The control for that is scheduled in April...
I don’t know when the lung biopsy will be scheduled. I hope soon, but I guess I have to wait for full recovery before a new surgery.
I live in Trondheim, but actually I am Italian
