Father's Recurrence After 4 Years
@baileycody and @wrolsen, just following up.
@wrolsen – might I ask about the results of the biopsy and what's next for you?
@baileycody – I'm so glad that the lymph nodes were clear. What did the oncologist suggest going forward?

We met with the oncologist last week and the surgeon today and they both agree that since all the lymph nodes were clear and they got clear margins there is no need for chemo or radiation. We’re back to our schedule of blood work every 6-8 weeks and scan every 4-6 months. Keeping our fingers crossed 🤞
My lung biopsy was canceled because the pre-biopsy scan showed the nodule had all but disappeared. As far as the biopsy of the area where they reattached my pancreas the tumor board is reconsidering the need for a biopsy because the spot in question is reducing in size also. So just waiting for tumor board recommendation. Feeling good about it.
