Post CRS & HIPEC liver surgey

Hi

Got a phone call from liver specialist nurse at Manchester Royal Infirmary , said that they were phoning my old Manchester city centre address number. Anyway they have still been quick off the mark and have got appointment with liver surgeon in two days time on Friday 12th in morning. Got patient transport there and back from Cleveleys.

Really pleased surgeon has a very good reputation and works closely with Christies as a member of their MDT. Will update you on outcome...:x:

Hi @Mum37 @Baxter2 @LynneW

Thanks! I have been very fortunate and I could not have had better treatment if I had won the lottery and popped over to the Mayo Clinic in Orange County for the operation. I have had world class treatment from Christie and MRI.

cheers :x:

@GD1962 Glad to hear you feel so well looked after. Keep up the brilliant progress but don't forget to be gentle with yourself. :x:

Sounds good @GD1962! I’ve only dealt with Christie recently on admin but amazing!!! We did look at the Mayo when first got diagnosed with advanced situ, had all booked (but then saw Oxford and realised same treatment in UK etc) and I think Christie admin better!!!!! :x::x:

So pleased for @El Ivan, and @GD1962, this liver surgery is certainly easier than bowel surgery. Fingers crossed for the pair of you.:x::x:

@GD1962 and @El Ivan

I agree with @Clancy. The recovery from liver resection is a walk in the park compared to bowel surgery and especially CRS and HIPEC!!

Good luck guys!
