Tell me your story. Of you had resection and pump placement or only the pump because they couldn't take anything out yet.

I need the stories... The guidance. You've guided me to MSK and we are embarking on Kemeny's wishes to get us to his pump surgery. I just need others experiences.

I had pump placement and resection of colon only (not liver) because I requested that...saying that I was hoping the pump would make my liver resectable and then the colon would be done. Dr. Patty at MSK did that for me. Six months later I had iri (Irreversible electropution--Dr. Solomon) to one met in my liver that was near the portal vein...then a month later resection of the right side of my liver followed by a few months of FUDR in pump. No recurrence in liver since. (5 years). The pump saved my life.
