Re: New member, new diagnosis, new to all of this.

Hi, Kerry,
Nice to hear you like Northwestern.
They are the pioneer of Y90 development.; there are a lot skillful interventional ridiologists there to help you out.
Please , after comparing  of other options(ie: chemotherapy ,targeted therapy from oncologist; IMRT from radiation oncology and chemoembolization from IR and Liver surgeon from Dr. Kato.) ;sitting down and list the pros and cons before  you finalize your decision.

Ask what if y90 don't work and what will be the next opinion from Northwestern.
Can they do segmental radioembo to less the toxicity as compare to doing the whole liver all at once if there is a choice.

God bless.
