Hi, I had as liver resection last May 2021 . My cancer came back 8 months later which is this past January.
It has been recommended that I have a Y-90. And Immunotherapy. After a consult with all my DR's it is now recommended that I have a consult with the Transplant team at a nearby hospital. So much is happening so fast. It is hard for me to take it all in. If one is to qualify for a liver transplant you can not have had any systemic treatment which includes Immunotherapy. I can move forward with the Y-90.
I am an otherwise 68 year old healthy female with no other liver disease or major health issues.
Has anyone had a transplant or other treatment that they think could be helpful?
Iggy. I understand your frustration and decisions you have to make. Almost 5 years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 HCC with 2 metastasis. No surgery was possible because it was 11 cm tumor with portal vein thrombosis. I was given 6 months. Took a chance on Y90 and 53 infusions of Opdivo. Today doing well. No metastasis and tumor shrunk to 5 cm. Just something to think about. Prayers also were the most important part of treatment. Prayers and blessings to you. Wayne
