A few surgeries later and I was cancer free. Go with your gut instincts on this. Find a board-certified thoracic surgeon or an interventional radiologist who will work with you.

Luckily I have found a Radiologist who wants to freeze the crap out of my liver mets and it's out patient. The cool thing about Cryo and RFA is that they can be administered several times if mets come back and they won't make other treatments unavailable to you in the future. My Radiologist says he thinks the Cryo could stimulate the immune system too, making treatment more effective. I can't wait to find out!
