I need some help understanding this ...anyone out there? The title of the study indicates curative resection without major hepatectomy? Does the latter mean that a whole node of the liver is removed and thus isn't the same as a resection? The procedure I had was a liver resection, but they also called it a partial or something or other hepatectomy. It seemed like a pretty major deal to me....but from my perspective, the description sounded like a difficult operation. Just trying to figure out where I'd fit in this group, if at all.
