Member Story – Rick Sorg

The first one was the day after my annual physical. I wrapped myself in an electric blanket for forty minutes to get warm and called my Blue Cross doctor, who the day before had declared me very fit. A new blood test and exam showed nothing of interest. Two days after the third episode I was at the VA clinic to renew my Lipitor prescription and shared with him what had been happening. After an exam and x-ray, a mass was found on my liver. The next day I had a CT scan and two days later the doctor called me to come in. Ninety percent of my liver was filled with three major tumors and what they called “satellite” tumors.
