Topic: Embolization experiences (or other pallative options for large tumors)
As noted in my previous topic, I am on the clinical trial for Sorafenib to treat Stage 4 CC. Right now one of my biggest issues/problems is reference pain in my back which we believe is caused due to the size of my primary tumor in the liver (~6cm X 8cm). In one of my consultations at UCSF (not where I am being treated) the doctor had suggested that chemo embolization might be an option to help relieve symptoms related to the primary tumor size. My doctor here in Seattle has downplayed this option. Wondering if anyone has experience with embolization of a large tumor and whether it helped significantly reduce any reference type pains that I'm experiencing?
