To paraphrase my ultrasound report, I still have extensive metastasis but my condition is "essentially grossly unchanged."
My other organs are "unremarkable."
There is no fluid buildup.
"IMPRESSION: Grossly stable liver disease."
Jeez, do you you think the radiologist could have qualified her opinions any more ("Please note that it is extremely diffficult to accurately compare between 2 ultrasound studies.")?
I'll take it, though.
My liver functions are pretty close to normal again, too.
So....still don't know what is causing the stitch but it's not bigger tumours eating my liver.
My doctor who works with my oncologist is going to order another CT scan (which can provide a more detailed analysis) but doesn't feel this needs to be done urgently. It will be ordered for a couple of months from now, as part of regular testing (and in lieu of my next ultrasound).
That reassured me as much as anything.
I am very relieved.
And about to pour myself a glass of red wine.
