I was a user on the old website and my info can be found here:
I have since seen a surgeon that states resection is an option. The tumor is close to the rt hepatic vein. He says he can do it with only opening a "hand port" and not cutting me wide open. With that said his biggest concern is me having only one lung and getting pnemonia while in the hospital. He says that ablation won't work and that therasphere's are not used for this and also not an indicated treatment (insurance wise). He is presenting my case to the Tumor Board on the 27th. I have also spoken with the Pathologist and my cell make up was all three but more solid form and thus he states more aggressive than my lung tumor was in 05' I saw an Interventional Radiologist today just to rule out that avenue and BAM. He states he thinks that sir spheres will work on my tumor! They have been using them for other cancers other than Mets from colorectal cancers with sucess. I AM TOTALLY CONFUSED NOW. I guess my questions would be
1) has anyone had this work and if so how long and what was the experience like?
2) Any Dr.s care to weigh in on this? I would hate to go through this and then have to go through a resection also. I have done resection and traditional radiation in 05' and now this.
3) Has anyone been through any of this that can shed some light on my situation?
ANYTHING would be of help at this point.
