Hello, well I underwent 1 of 6 TACE procedures 4 weeks ago and prior to this had an echogram to allow me to undergo the procedure, however the last few minutes of of the TACE produre endured severe pain in chest, but I told docs but they said they will give me more painkiller before having the next one next week. However the nurse said I do not have to have an echo prior but being as I have APS and its unpredictable, shouldn't I have one done? to see if any blockages. The nurse does not really understand about APS. TACE is when chemo in put into a tumour in the liver, although sedated I felt this pain. I also explained to consultant and he said more powerful drugs as I have to have it. Its a nightmare with some medical professionals with knowledge about APS, just wondering if anyone has undergone this
