Re: Question please

Hey @Jubbly,

 

I just wanted to check in and see how you're doing this week?

 

Regarding calcification present in a tumour, I think that's something you need to talk to with your oncologist or GP. Calcification usually refers to calcium but without knowing the context and such, I think that's best you refer this back to your treating team.

Re: Question please

Hi Kate, well the first trip to the hospital and the doc suggested we wait to see if it gets bigger, hadn't seen the ct scans didn't even know that I had had them. Doc has taken my case to the mdt to see what they think. She believes it is inoperable and unbiopsy-able. I'm stuck in a vortex 🙁
