I got a call today from the surgeon who removed my gallbladder last Friday, 7/1. He had just rec'd the pathology report for the gallbladder. It turns out that the gallbladder had cancer tissue. So...I guess this means that the cancer has spread to at least one additional organ. I don't know exactly what this will mean. Dr M will contact Dr E (my oncologist) to ensure that he sees the pathology report. I guess I wait to hear back. Dr M had indicated to Jill that he had removed a very inflamed gallbladder with lots of stones and stringy stuff attached to it. I suppose that might have been the cancer. He indicated that he had removed it all. Now I wait for direction and for the results of the brain MRI this past week.
