I have posted on here a few times before regarding my mum but bascially stage 3 dx march 2005(CA125 went from 512 to 12), reoccurred Nov 2007 (CA125 60). After all the chemo her CA125 is now 18, but the CT scan shows a small mass on the liver which has shrunk but 1cm still remains.
Her oncologist has put her on femara and said to wait and see what happens.
I can't just sit about I have to be pro-active so I have been searching the internet and found out about the above treatment for liver tumors.
I then contacted a Dr at a hospital that offers this treatment and they have said they might be able to do this on mums tumour as its only 1cm.
I have 2 questions, have you ever heard about this treatment, is it effective?
2) The hospital I contacted needs a letter from mums current oncologist about mums treatment so far and the tumour still left. Could mums current Dr refuse her more treatment if she gets this treatment from the new Dr, as my mum is worried she wouldn't get any more treatment.
