It's a shitstorm that seems to have no end. At least that is how it feels.

What had actually happened was that the catheter dislodged from my husband’s artery. (We had been emphatically assured that that was a rare event by Dr. D'Angelica. Ugh.) He is so very lucky to be alive as when this happens people can bleed out and die. The interventional radiologists went in through his femoral artery and patched it up. Amazing that they can get into the hepatic artery and do what would otherwise be surgery. They drained the pump of chemo and left it empty during the procedure so the pump died. They turned it off yesterday so it doesn't beep. There is no resurrecting it, nor would we want it to be! His catheter is now free floating out from the pump around his small intestines. GREAT!

His hemoglobin bounced a bit after his procedure, from MSK arrival value of 7.9 (to high of 9.2) but then dropped to 7.7 and then up to 7.8 yesterday night. I was frantic to discover this as it did not make sense to me and called to see if I could get some information that would help me understand. The nurse said that they would keep testing and should it get to their threshold of 7, he would get a transfusion. This still didn't reassure me because it sounded like treating a symptom instead of a cause.

Dr. Kemeny believed that he could be experiencing hemodilution. They were supposed to lower the saline IV drip rate to try to counteract this but according to my husband, they did this for a short while, then put it back to where it was. He was confused as this was all happening in the middle of the night. He was/is completely exhausted so I don't really have a good picture of what went on.

After a night of very little sleep, I checked the portal and saw that it was now 7.1. I got a call this morning from one of Dr. D'Angelica's fellows who explained that this could be a natural variation given the circumstances. (Or could maybe not be!) What they do at this point is give a unit of blood and see how his hemoglobin and hematocrit responds. If it rebounds to 7.9 or above, they will be cautiously happy and will watch to make sure it steadies. However, if it only jumps to 7.3, stays the same, or drops, they will be concerned. He said that they would then do another CT with contrast to see if they can see what is going on.

I also found out this morning from a nurse that the interventional radiologist embolized his pancreas which was bleeding. (The radiologist DID NOT SAY A FUCKING THING ABOUT THIS AT THE DEBRIEF MEETING WE HAD AFTER THE PROCEDURE. Nor did Dr. D'Angelica when I saw him yesterday for his explanation of what was going on.)

Ok, so getting back to the conversation I had a couple of hours ago with the fellow, I'm always concerned about CTs not getting an accurate picture of what is going on with my husband, so I wasn't terrifically reassured. This is especially because what I really think has happened, despite both Dr. D'Angelica and Dr. Kemeny's attempts yesterday to assure me that chemo leakage could not have caused significant damage (including Dr. D'Angelica saying that FUDR is administered into the abdominal cavity as a chemo treatment), is that there was extra-hepatic perfusion into those liver lymph nodes that the post-implantation flow scan test radiologist said was present. (Dr. Kemeny overrode that opinion. Dr. D'Angelica deferred to her on this and in that conversation said that liver lymph nodes are not considered "blood vessels" when I asked him about the paper he and Dr. Kemeny authored on the subject of extra-hepatic perfusion.) I suspect that there was indeed leakage as his Hgb started to decline as of April 1st, the date he started his first round of FUDR. I think the FUDR entered those two lymph nodes and into his blood stream. The FUDR corroded the hepatic artery and weakened the connection to the point where it gave way on Sunday night when all this started. It probably also leaked into the pancreas.

Yeah, shitstorm is a nice way of putting this living hell.

There is going to be a huge price to pay.... and I am taking no prisoners.

Oh my world :shock: :cry: I am so sorry to hear this news!
Will they now (have to) remove the HAI pump that you say has ”died”? If so why wasn’t it removed during the procedures? Please forgive me if that is a stupid question - it’s just that I hear that you are worried about ’something floting around his small intestines’. Both of you must be totally exhausted!!
I’m going to try my best to send strengthening vibes and I hope you will hear good news soon!

This sounds like such a terrible ordeal.

In reading this, I recall that from the get-go you have been concerned about complications, particularly with the new pump / old catheter not being proven. And now here you are having experienced exactly what you were worried about.

I hope you get to better clarity regarding what happened, and that the doctors are successfully able to continue to resolve the current issues and get your husband healed.

Hi Gina,

Indeed I had many a concern, not only about the pump--catheter being investigatory but about the pump generally in terms of the risks of HAI FUDR. If I am correct that the particular Codman catheter used in this adaptation is the same model that MSK has used for many years with the old Codman pump, then it turns out that the fact that my husband's pump was Medtronic did not make a difference in what caused the problem to happen. The "problem" I am still trying to analyze, but one thing is for certain, the artery eroded to the point where it gave way to the implanted (delivery) end of the catheter where it was attached to the liver and bleeding is a known side effect of FUDR.

Hi Lena,

So, because the catheter is no longer connected to anything on the liver end, it is "free floating" in a sense that it is only tethered on one end right now: at the pump end where it comes out of the pump. I do not feel this is safe to leave like this.

It was not removed because he has not had surgery to deal with any of this. The only procedure he has had this week was the interventional radiology stent placement and embolization of the pancreas. That is done via the arterial system that the interventional radiologist enters with a catheter they place through the femoral artery.

It’s terrible you both have to go through this, this cancer business is tough. I’ve often thought the treatment can be worse than the disease, and you’re seeing it upfront and personal. I remember signing a bunch of documents before my surgeries, possible side effects of surgery, some of them seemed impossible but yet they happened. He’ll get through it!

I started a new thread titled "HAI pump nightmare" that has received not one comment. Interesting.

So, there is far too much to type if I was to provide an update on this forum now. I don't have the time at the moment as there has been so many events and developments.

The one major concern I am is the answer that I received to my question about following up to see the extent of the damage that has happened or could still be going on. In short, I was blown off with one exception. After speaking with Dr. Kemeny on Friday about my concerns that they could be being discharging him too early (long story, will fill in a far longer narrative later when I compile complete documentation), she said she wanted to see him Monday (today).

When I read this yesterday, I nearly lost my shit (going from NED to this within 6 weeks is just overwhelming....and I know there is a possibility that all *could* be hemorrhagic, but I am disconcerted by the fact that there even is the possibility of carcinamotosis in what was being seen 17 hours after the catheter gave way and became completely dislodged from the gastroduodenal artery):

[RELEVANT] FINDINGS:
There are multiple masses within the abdomen. One is located in the midabdomen anteriorly within the mesentery located just below the stomach. This mass measures approximately 13 cm longitudinal and 5 cm short axis diameter on coronal images by approximately 7 cm in AP diameter. This has some heterogeneous internal high density and some
areas of low-density and could represent tumor or possibly a combination of tumor and hematoma.

There is a second heterogeneous mass located in the upper abdomen anterior to the body of the stomach. This measures approximately 7 cm in diameter and is of similar density with areas of high density and interspersed lower density. There is a catheter traversing through this mass which connects to an electronic device in the anterior
abdominal/lower chest wall.

There are several additional similar masses seen adjacent to the duodenal bulb and porta hepatis measuring 4 cm and 5 cm in diameter respectively. There are numerous surgical clips adjacent to the porta hepatis mass and the catheter tracks adjacent to this.

There is irregular thickening along the anterior pararenal fascia and within the mesenteric fat which could represent additional hemorrhage or possibly carcinomatosis. It would be helpful to compare to older studies however none of the old studies from this institution (most recent CT chest 11/5/2018) show any of these abnormalities.

LIVER: The liver is mildly heterogeneous. There are clusters of metallic densities within the RIGHT lobe and within the LEFT lobe which are presumably related to tumor therapy. There is a 3 cm hypodense rounded mass located at the junction of the RIGHT and LEFT lobes which does not have any associated metallic clips.

IMPRESSION:
1. There is moderate free intraperitoneal high density fluid seen in the RIGHT abdomen and within the pelvis consistent with hemoperitoneum.
2. There are multiple peritoneal masses located anterior and also inferior to the stomach and adjacent to the porta hepatis which are likely metastatic lesions. A catheter traverses one of these lesions and passes close to several of the other lesions. These presumably represent tumor however heterogeneous high density also suggest at least a portion of each mass could represent hemorrhage and likely is the source of the free intraperitoneal hemorrhage.
3. There is a component of retroperitoneal hemorrhage tracking along the anterior pararenal fascia which is also likely from the same source.
4. There are metallic clips within the liver in the RIGHT and LEFT lobe which are presumably related to treated metastases. There is one hypodense mass located between the RIGHT and LEFT lobes which likely
represents an additional metastatic lesion
5. Small LEFT pleural effusion.
6. It would be helpful to obtain copies of previous CT scans or the reports of previous scans to help determine how much of these peritoneal masses are likely tumor and how much hematoma. A CT with intravenous contrast may also be helpful in further characterizing these abnormalities.

So, the above-referenced helical axial CT was done without contrast at our local hospital at 9:00 pm Monday night, which I briefly mentioned above was 17 hours after the time it appears that the catheter finally gave way from the artery (1:30 am or so, which was following the 11:00 pm to 1:00 am severe cramping that alerted us that something was wrong). I have not yet seen the CT with contrast that was done at Albany Medical Center at around 7:00 am Tuesday morning. I am praying that it ruled out carcinomatosis in ALL these very worrisome spots.

I have been reading about aneurysms and pseudo-aneurysms (which is how I would characterize what happened) of the gastroduodenal artery and apparently the mortality rate is 40%.

He is so very lucky to be alive. My logical side has a very hard time believing in God or a Higher Power, whatever one wants to call it, but it's times like this that restore my faith.

That's my feeling too.

radnyc,

Yeah, well, the only scans there are that I am aware of between the time of the catheter dislodge and now are those from our local hospital in Vermont and Albany Med. I do not know what scans may have been done when he was in interventional radiology Tuesday night at MSK. I do not believe that they keep real time scans of what they perform but I am not sure. So far, MSK has blown off my multiple requests for scans to see what could be still in there and going on. Obviously, I will find out more from Dr. Kemeny never that might be. (Freudian slip..... whenever that might be is what I meant to type)

gina,

Intent? Haven't given it consideration but that's an interesting idea.

Maybe I misunderstood your statement that you found it “interesting” that nobody commented. It seemed you were interpreting that as a sign that people didn’t care, and I wanted to say I don’t think that is the case.

I’m at MSK today for treatment if you would like to connect live. I’m in jeans and a white tunic top with a navy print and a (fake) ponytail, hanging on 5 waiting for my infusion to start.
