I am a mother to 4 beautiful children 11,15,15,16. I have been married 17 years. I was dianosed with colon cancer stage 1 June 2012. In July 2012 my large intestine were removed and I had a full hysterectomy. My Dr said I was cured he was turning me loose to live my life. Fast forward 2015 I go in for a Ct scan. The Dr calls telling me I have some masses on my liver. I was Diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer of the liver. I had 12 rds of chemotherapy. I finshed in February 2016. April 2016 Drs removed 60% of my liver. I stayed in ICU a few days then came home.
A week later I woke to a soaked shirt. My wound that is from my sternum to my pelvis was leaking fluid. I called my Dr they said it was ok. After hrs of fluid leaking changing colors and many calls to the Dr saying it is ok. At 8pm I went to the ER. They took 1 look rushed me to the back and cut my chest open on the strecher. I had a bile duct leak. I was hospitalized for a week.
December 2016 I had a Ct scan days after Christmas my Dr called and told me I have a mass back on my liver where they cut it. And I have a mass in my lung. I was Diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic cancer of the liver and lung.
I started chemotherapy February 2017. I finished 12 rds. I am now getting radation. My lung is a 3 day treatment. My liver because it is so close to my small intestine needs lower small doses stretched out 5 weeks daily.
This has drained my family financially. I am asking/begging for your help.
Driving everyday to treatment is going to be a strain. I am getting bills I do have insurance but its 80/20. Please share my story. Thank you for taking time to read this and sharing it.
