Oh, I really hope that the chemoembolization and TheraSphere will shrink/kill his tumor. He might undergo resection like I did, several months post TheraSphere. As I mentioned previously, it takes awhile for it to reach maximum effect. I wasn't a transplant candidate, either. I pray that Mike will be approved for these treatments and that they will be effective for him.
There was a questionable spot on my left lobe (all that remains of my liver), but the MRI with Gadolinium I just had shows no cancer. Thank God! So 2 1/2 years cancer free now. They are going to do scans every 3 mos. for awhile.
Believe me, Mayo is "on the case." They will do everything possible for Mike, and all of their doctors are very highly skilled.
Please keep us posted. As always, thoughts and prayers are with you both.
