My eye was drawn to this because I've been trying to figure out whether the HAI pump would work on my 2 enlarged lymph nodes in the porta hepatis in addition to my tiny liver met, if keytruda doesn't work for me. I've been having a hard time finding information pertaining directly to treatment of such nodes. My oncologist considers them to be very risky to try to remove due to their location with no curative benefit in doing so, at least at this point. I am concerned that if they grow they will put pressure on the arteries/veins and bile ducts in the porta hepatis structure with obviously negative results. I know that stenting is possible, but finding some way to attack them directly the way HAI attacks liver mets would be awfully nice.
