    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    One month after ablation/tace a new tumor appeared but to close to blood vessel to use ablation. This drug is ok but it makes me feel sick. I will be having another tace procedure along with this drug.

    Easy to Do: Agree

    Gall bladder attack's

    Oh No

    Liver cancer was found during an xray for gall bladder. I have to live with gall bladder until liver cancer procedures are finished. I am using pain pills to get through them, but they cause side effects.
