Yes, Laparoscopy is a possibility.
Good question about
the Yervoy. Come to think of it Yervoy is only approved for melanoma...I think. Another question to ask him. Maybe he's thinking I can pay for it......Not.
Yes, Those beads are SIR Spheres. They are radioactive about
1/3 the size of a human hair. I guess they go in the femoral artery with a catheter similar to angioplasty. I think they can either inject the "Sphere" or even Chemo directly into the Lesion if the
location is good.
Thanks for the links you sent to me about
the clinical trials for SBRT/Chemo. Unfortunately I'm disqualified because of prior Proton Beam radiation last year. My profile is updated with 40 proton beam treatments last summer.
