The first year she had five mets . Segments 1 to 3 were clear but the rest had evidence of disease .
She initially had four wedge resections but to be honest I think other disease was in there also but not big enough to detect so she immediately recurred . They did say they would have to be creative around certain areas as they resected to try and leave a small but functioning piece of liver .
In total she had ten visible mets . To be honest after resection the surgeon just said we found what we expected “ cancer” and did not elaborate on how much by that time . He was being kind and to be honest by that point I don’t think anyone had a appetite to press him on it .
The chemo on its own was fantastic and shrunk it all , most of the scan so I think radio frequency ablation would have become challenging in that it was no longer visible !
However my mum’s oncologist said the research coming through on it is giving surgeons a good run for their money !
I hope your dad gets a good response .
Take care ,
