Radio frequency ablution

Thank you to all of you who replied to my previuos post.

My CA125 keeps going up and am now waiting for a CT scan. I am not panicking just yet as i am feeling good and have no symptoms what so ever but have been researching my options online. A friend of mine who lives in Holland and works in the medical field pointed out a relatively new but increasingly popular treatment for metastatic cancer called radio frequency ablution. Is there anyone out there that has experience with. that

If so was it effective?

Hi. So interesting to see your post. I had a cardiac ablation procedure for palpitations due to supraventricular tachycardia (SVT) (a kind of heart arrythmia) 2 days ago. They placed a catheter in a blood vessel in my groin and moved it to my heart in order to be able to be able to zap the area of my heart that is causing the SVT. Yesterday I emailed the physician who did this procedure to ask if he ever used it in regard to ovarian cancer treatment. I am hoping for a speedy reply and will share what I find out.

Hope you are recovering well. Thank you so much for your post it is much appreciated. It is said to know that sometimes you get more information through groups like this than from the health system.
