Great Consultation With Dr. D'Angelica

Postby hart2hart » Mon Oct 14, 2013 7:43 pm

Dear All -

Pete is scheduled for Liver Resection/Pump Surgery with Dr. D'Angelica on October 29th.
Loved Him. So I asked him how many has has done(Pump) and he said alot ---- paused and said
That he has done the MOST in the world!! So both Pete and I are ready to get this lesion out.
Said Pete would only lose 5 - 10% at Most of his liver. In a really accessible spot.

Sloan could not do his CT Scan today so assuming Pete's scan on Thursday is good we proceed with
surgery and start with Dr. Kemeny two weeks ish after surgery. We did not meet her today due to Time Constraints. I am a little confused on the chemo after --
not Oxi ----I Hope. We hope it's Folfori systemic and FUDR in the pump. Would love to hear what systemic chemo
any clubbie had!

We are pooped ---Can't believe how crazy it was at Sloan! Wow! Again, Loved Everything about D'Angelica.

That is exciting news!

My DH got Irinotecan systemically and FUDR in the pump initially because he did not have a port. Then he kicked up to Folfiri and Erbitux systemically with FUDR in the pump. Now he gets Folfiri and Erbitux systemically with FUDR and Mitomycin in the pump ... basically everything and the kitchen sink now.

dx 5/16/11 stg 4 RC
mets both lobes liver & lung

FOLFOX 9-12/11
12/11 TME/liver resect/rfa (15 tumors)

Pete sounds like he is in good spirits, but Jewels, I hope your ready for a diet :shock: Probably only for a while, until the master chef is up and cooking again. I dunno though, Pete does love his hot dogs :roll:
