Again, I believe my experience with Dr. Nagarajan and the staff of hematology/oncology, combined with CC Radiology, is why I am still alive today. After my liver was partially resected and my metastatic lymph condition diagnosed, I was told there was an 80% chance I'd be dead within five years. It's been almost 2.5 years since the initial diagnosis, and, at least for the moment, I am cancer free. With each passing six month clean CT scan, I am told the likelihood of reappearance declines. I attribute that new prognosis to Dr. Nagarajan the most.
