Do any of you have have experience in the recovery from Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) of a HCC tumour? The doctors don't want to talk about the side effects and complications but I think it must be more difficult than a biopsy. I am expecting at least a difficult 2 weeks. I usually get a lot of pain after a biopsy or banding. The other main side effects are listed as raised temperature and bleeding. My platelets are in the range 35 to 60 put they are not guaranteeing to give my a transfusion unless they are lower than 50. This part is concerning me.
