Corrine - this sounds almost e xactly like what happened with my dad. Original diasgnosis of poorly differentiated adeno from a local hospital biospy was wrong, turned out to be well-differentiated NET. He had a similar presentation as your husband, and no elevated CA 19-9. Are they willing to run a Chromogranin A marker test? That was elevated 5 times normal on my dad, who is treated at hopkins. Dr Fishman is known as one of their best radiologists. Definitely get them to do the new liver biospy, they can do all the right special stains. Feel free to email me if you'd like to dsicuss further
