Welcome to the site. So sorry that you had to find us all and I am sorry to hear about your sister also. But I am glad that you have delurked and joined us all here as I know that you will get a ton of support and help from everyone here.
I too am from Scotland, Dundee, born, bred and still live here! And I came here back in 2008 after my dad was diagnosed with his CC. He was diagnosed and treated at Ninewells here in Dundee. Can I ask where your sister was diagnosed and had her portal vein embolisation done as well? The reason that I ask is that this information may be of interest and use to others from Scotland who may come here in the future. I assume that if your sister does have her resection then it will be done at the same hospital?
Sorry for the questions!! My fingers are crossed for good news for your sister and I so hope that she will be able to have her resection on Monday. Please let us know if she can. I know that your head will probably still be spinning with everything about all of this, I know mine was when I was in your shoes. But please know that we are all here for you. We so know what you are going through right now and we care.
My best wishes to you and your sister,
