Topic: Questions about Y90, theraspheres or whatever you want to call them.
I just would like to know if someone that has had Y90 or whatever you want to call it (I know it has a lot of different names) could tell me all about it. Lauren's oncologist called and talked to her today about it. I guess after her appt. last week he and her surgeon had a lenthy chat. Lauren's liver surgeon wants her to have it done to zap the small tumors in the left side of her liver to be able to get rid of the huge tumor in her right side. He is fairly confident that if the little ones are gone he can get the big one out. He does many, many resections and transplants so we trust him completely. He said her surgery would be huge, but he thinks he can do it. He wouldn't attempt it or even talk about it unless he was confident of a positive outcome. On one side I am so excited for Lauren, but on the other side it scares the beejeebers out of me, because of where the tumor sits, but I know it is her shot at survival. I would appreciate any comments on what it is exactly and what it was like to go through it such as side effects, etc. Thanks in advance.
My comments, suggestions, and opinions are based on my experience as a caretaker for my daughter, Lauren and from reading anything I can get my hands on about Cholangiocarcinoma. Please consult a physician for professional guidance.
