Calling Mass General today to reschedule the biopsy-ablation which is definitely premature at this point. Friday's MRI at MSK will be extremely helpful.

I just noticed that you got the HAI pump although you had lung mets. For some reason (in addition to the fact that extrahepatic cancer disqualifies people from the pump trial at MSK) I thought that one cannot get the pump if there are lung mets.
I am curious because a family friend had two lung ablations recently and just yesterday a scan found another tumor on his liver which had been worked on a few months ago. She is at UPenn where Dr. DeMatteo now is and I have heard that he has wanted to start a pump program there. I'm wondering if she might be a candidate.
