That's really interesting. Thanks for sharing and for keeping up with this less common treatment. Have many on this board had photodynamic therapy?

Hi Willow,

Yes my dad had PDT with a metal stent as his treatment for PDT. I wrote quite a bit about his experiences here on the site and if you use the search forum function that will throw up some of my posts on that if you wanted to read more about them.

Best wishes,

Gavin
