Today (7/5/16) Reba had surgery. Going into the procedure our surgeon Dr. Bruzoni told us he would attempt to biopsy the mass with minimal invasion, using laparoscopy and a guiding camera through her belly button. He was able to gather samples but the pathologist was not certain of the tissue so Dr. Bruzoni had to then go with plan B and make a larger incision (reopening the old scar from the last surgery in February) and get three larger samples.
So poor Reba has 5 incisions at the moment.
We will meet with our oncologists probably in about a week to discuss the results and plan.
