      Linda,

      It is normal to feel overwhelmed as the bad news comes in.  However,  as you absorb this news, you must put on your fighting gear and think positive.  Anything is possible.  I can't comment on your specific area of mets nor your treatment plan.  However, there have been many times that scan results weren't looking good for me and I'm still here with a decent quality of life.  A tumor on my liver was 4.5 cm!  Your situation is far from hopeless and you have to believe that.

      Stay Strong
