Hello, yes indeed, T2NxMx is curable.  Surgery first and most important, liver dissection and node removal.... After surgery, they will know more about the Nx and the Mx. if those are 0, then she will likely do very well.

Best of luck!!!!!

I am doing well, life is good, no more cancer.  I had my surgery 7 years ago.  I am very lucky that my cancer was caught early.

   best regards to you and your mother.

Hello Maudise

You are an inspiration to people like us. I m glad i came across this forum.

I am your mother's age now, 68, I was 61 when I had the cancer. If your mother is in otherwise good health, she should do pretty well.  Of course, everyone is different.  You know your mother best, but in general I think this is information that you should not withhold.  I am assuming surgery will be scheduled very soon (or it should be) and she will certainly have to know what is going on.  The surgery isn't easy, of course, and she will be in the hospital likely almost a week.  The chemo and radiation were unpleasant, but bearable.  You can go back to my earliest posts for some description.

I just want to say again: the single most important thing is surgery.  The chemo is an extra step AFTER that.    So unless there is an immediate problem or reason why not, the surgery should be scheduled as soon as possible.

good luck!

I too was diagnosed after laproscopic gall badder removal for gallstones.  I then had the larger surgery, where the surgeons found the cancer had invaded the liver in the area that had been touching the gall bladder.  They removed that slice of liver....which removed the cancer.  Also the removal of lymph was done to see if there was any spread that way (there wasn't).  I am just saying that the only sure way to remove this cancer is surgically.  I'm glad your mother has only one more chemo cycle and then they will consider surgery.  I would MAKE SURE THEY DO THAT SURGERY.  SOON.  I am sorry if I sound forceful, but I feel this is important.  Ask your mother's doctors, or review information on line if you'd like more understanding.

--best,
