Cindi, I was at Mayo when I had chemoembolization and then TheraSphere several months later. It takes time for the tumor to shrink (mine was 12 cm x 11.5 cm), so it was several more months before I had surgery to remove the right lobe. TheraSphere was a study drug at the time, at least here at Mayo Jax, but Mayo Rochester had been using it previously. I had absolutely no side effects from it--felt wiped out after the chemoembolization.
