One could have had two years of insight and potential benefit from some other chemistry(s) if the gastroenterologist, surgeon or onc pulled their heads out. Otherwise we have make it a priority, and get it done ourselves.

Here’s what we got: rapid onsite specimen evaluation (biopsy) of caudate lobe tumor - benign; of the one suspicious tumor - cancer; nearby that one is two other tumors, too deep to biopsy so were ablated (therefore never know if cancer or not); and another that was resected and later biopsied. Pump placed and flow scan looks good. There was one spot that was leaking outside the liver but D’Angelica was able to ligate that. So, all in all there was one met, two unknowns, and one we will find out. He’s spending the night in the PACU so he will have good continuous careful monitoring throughout the night.
