Today I met with the surgeon at Seattle Cancer Care Allliance, Dr. Venu Pillarisetty. He consulted with several of his colleagues at a multidisciplinary meeting and presented to me with confidence that he can remove this mass. Hearing that was sweet music to my ears! The surgery is scheduled for August 3rd, exactly one month from my last surgery date. It’s quite too soon considering I’m still recovering, but I just can’t have this thing growing in me anymore.
