Sweet! Way to go. And keep it up.

Also you must be quite the salesman, I've been on here for years and still don't like Miatas...

I'm curious what the special diet was. Some kind of protean only diet?

Yup, tuna steaks, 2 boneless skinless chicken breast, limited leafy greens, up to 1 cup of brown rice a day, and some synthetic shakes (ugh) for the past 12 weeks.

Did I read your post right that the tumor shrunk SO much that you went from a liver transplant to just removing the tumor???

If I read that right, that's really awesome!

Good to read that you are in great spirts!

In reply to alfadriver:

That's correct, they took a good bit extra as well. The magic size was 2.5cm, it needed to be below that to avoid the transplant and hadn't measured smaller than that on the ultrasound since July. Above 3.5cm and they weren't sure the transplant would've been a viable option.

There might be something in that brown rice. Actor Dirk Benedict claimed it cured his cancer. I saw him on TV talking about it in the 70's. My wife has brought many critters back from the edge of death on a diet of brown rice.
