Topic: chemoembolization vs radioembolization
Wondering who here PERSONALLY has had either and how it went?
Looking for REAL LIFE thoughts and experiences (as opposed to links
and medical data which I can never understand anyway) please.
After Kyle finishes 2 more weeks of Gem/Cis (total now of 16 chemo
treatments--not cycles. He will have had 18 total chemo days of
gem/cis when he's done)
With ZERO 'bad' side effects other than tired. No numbness,
sensitivity to cold, nada. he feels pretty darn lucky.
They want him to meet with a radiologist and discuss the above
two options. I have read LOTS online about pros/cons...but would
LOVE to hear PERSONAL stories of those who have done it.
Real life examples.
I am nervous to venture into the unknown when what we're
doing is working quite well. We would like as much GOOD time
as possible...so far that's what we're getting.
As a refresher kyle was diagnosed in March of this yr.
Stage 4, one main liver tumor with 2 or 3 regional lymph nodes
involved and 2 teeny spots in lungs. But yup, still stage 4 metastatic
cancer. never a great thing. but fight we will for as long as we can.
Anyone that can share their story here?
Please and Thank you!
