Meet with the GI oncology surgeon at Northwestern this morning. He told us that because the tumor is now smaller and slow growing that he felt comfortable waitng the six months to do anything else. He does want me to have blood drawn in 2 weeks and again at 6 weeks. He said it may take several repeat scopes over a period of time to remove it all. Follow up will be more scopes and biopsy of the area along with scans and blood work. (need to take out some stock in those companies that make endoscopy equipment). He was going to share his consult with the Rush doctors. Funny thing he told us at the end was you can't forget about this, it needs to monitored and we ( the doctors) won't forget it. Had to laugh afterwards, how could I possible forget! Pete and I talked and both agreed that is this now is part of our lives, we deal with it one scope at a time and pray the rest of the time.
