The Mrs. has a regular CT Scan on a three month basis. Results are always the same. Liver tumors are contained and not growing. She is in pain from what has been determined to be other causes (crushed spinal disc), so I'm not sure she would know the difference if it was caused by something else.
We have been told that in our large midwestern metropolitan area, there are no doctors who know how to treat a Whipple survivor - there aren't any.
I'm tired of the doctors praising the work of the surgeon and exclaiming how fortunate she is to be alive, and that she is a 'miracle', but I don't know what I can do. She has immense faith in the doctors and the Creator.
