      When I first heard of his diagnosis, stage IV esophageal, I was afraid he would be one of the ones we hear about that get diagnosed and then they are gone just a few months or even weeks later. I've always liked him. I've played his music in bands for years going back to the '80s. Donna and I enjoyed his show on AXS too.

      I feel so sad for his family. They seemed so close. This will be especially hard for them I think because it all happened too fast. Not enough time to get used to the idea. I see more trips to the "rage room" . Cancer sucks.

      Happened upon "RealMoney" last night. It was the episode where they renew their wedding vows. "Through sickness and health, 'til death do us part" . Just heart wrenching. They seem such a close family. My heart goes out to them and every family who lose someone to this %&-'"&.

      @carm-Dr Ira Horowitz is chief of gyn/onc at Emory university/ Winship Cancer Institute. Not sure if he does this procedure or not but he is a good person to start with. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak with him directly when I was searching for second opinions in the CT /NY area. If he doesn’t do the procedure he could sure offer direction. Super nice gentleman

    Ablation of the liver

      Sorry I can't help with that, not my domain, but I'm sure some of the others here have had liver issues. They will give you some answers as soon as they see your question.

      I can't speak to ablation of the liver, but I had a hefty chunk ablated from my kidney almost two weeks ago. It hurt a lot for the first four days or so but my body is quickly recovering. I'm barely feeling twinges art this point.
      I'm not sure how much that helps @carm, but I hope it does.

      I also had kidney ablation. Very fast recovery, a week or two. My doctor said it is similar for liver treatment as a less invasive way to remove smaller tumors.
