I have been having a lot of tenderness in the liver area so I have been worried like crazy. My oncologist moved up my scans and bloodwork. This was the first time I was going six months between scans. I am feeling blessed to report my scans were clear and  my blood work and tumor markers were normal range.

Welcome Elaine,
I was diagnosed in 2010 stage IV icc. I always suggest a second or third opinion from a multidisciplinary team at a medical facility that has treated cc before. I have read so many articles about radiation not being effective for cc but I had SBRT three times and the treatment killed four tumors.

I had a resection in 2010 and again in 2011. I still experience some pain and tightness. My doctor said it is probably scar tissue and nerve damage from surgery.

Porter,
Please call me if you want to talk. I think  Duke has outlined a great plan. I know when I had new tumors after liver resections we used SBRT successfully, maybe ask about this type of radiation.
