Re: Liver lung mets rectal cancer UK

We just returned from London (we live in the US) where my husband had ablations to his liver mets (4) and then 5 days later, ablations to his lung mets (4, I think). We, of course, were self-pay, but I’m sure NHS covers these procedures in many cases. I would be happy to provide you with the names of the two doctors... they are both world-renown interventional radiologists. The reason we went to UK instead of having this done in US is that doctors in the UK do this much more in the US and thus (at least the doctors we used) have a greater track record on success.
