The test results are in. My vena cava vein is free and clear of the tumor. My doctor will try to do the surgery laparascopically, but will be ready to do an open surgery if necessary. Since the tumor is large, he doesn’t want to take any chances. It is still not known if the tumor is benign or malignant, which is why they are exercising caution. The vascular surgeon will be there as well, just in case.
My surgeon seemed a bit excited about this surgery. As did the vascular surgeon and endocrinologist. Seems this type of tumor is rare, and everyone has taken a keen interest in it. Hmmmmm, is that a good thing?
Surgery has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 7th. The day my grandson turns ONE.
I can’t think of a better good luck charm.
