I've never experienced that so can offer no advise i have no idea what the reactions are. I can only hope and pray right along with you and others that it was enough, and i wish you the absolute best and my strongest prayers.
Like Hector I have arteriovenous malformation which made the TACE procedure difficult. It means the blood vessels are a tangled mess and only 70 % of the Chemo got through. However the chembeads will be working on the area for the next 3 weeks so if I am lucky, it will do its job. Otherwise I think they may want a repeat performance and I am not ready to think about that.
Hector was right, it *is* an excruciatingly painful experience.
Some folks want to know more about what was going on. I think the anxiety I felt made me less open for awhile. Anyway, as it stands, we *think* the tumor is the only cancer. As long as it does not grow in size (and reach the portal vein) or metastasize, I will be able to go on a transplant list.
U.C. S.F. does live transplants and since I have two family members who want to be live donors, I need to decide on pushing that through while I have time or just signing up for the cadaver transplant.
I really cannot bear to think of my niece or daughter going through the pain of major surgery.
Anyway, that is where I am at now.
Hope you are all doing well. :-)
That is very interesting Rival. Hope everything is a okay now and you don't have to go through that pain again, You and Hector are troopers and inspirations for sure. Take it easy...and let us know how you are feeling. Thanks for sharing that email with me the other day. Your friend / Summer
Thanks dear friends.
I am feeling better as time passes and the toxins leave my body. I am surprised and proud of how my body works so hard to heal.
Summer, I have come to cherish our conversations. Thank *you*.
Love to you all.
