Well crumb, that's terrible news, i'm so sorry. I hope that they are wrong.

I take it they are going to try to remove the whole thing and then send out to biopsy?

I guess the immediate question is whether you want to give some supplements to help in case the disruption of the surgery disperses the cancer. My first thoughts were IP-6 and EGCG, but there are so many options out there, including good studies on mushrooms.

I am not sure, but IP-6 might affect platelets so not good before surgery, but dad always took his before surgery and was okay.

Will be keeping my fingers crossed that this is contained and hopefully fooled the experts.

Well that's what I thought too, but no. The scan is in part to lay out the limits of the thing. If it involves too much muscle it might require amputation and that forces a big decision. Also, if the scan shows an amount of metastasis that we didn't discuss, then that changes the whole logic of surgery. Finally, the biopsy is supposed to be a more representative sample than the former negative one (??????)

Regarding supplements, I am too distracted to read much about them, so will wait for the big news. Mars has had occasional loose stool and his diet requires a lot of tinkering (big news-right).

Just thinking of Mars and hoping for good news tomorrow. How long before you know the results? I think that's the worse part, the waiting impatient
