      Have a recurrence again after the liver resection which was the third recurrence - this time it has come as two spots in liver within two months of the second liver resection and one spot is actually three spots together !

      Planning on microwave ablation tomorrow and then what !.

      Have you had of you lungs done yet?
      Have you had radiation treatment with chemo "pills" yet?

      My mets so far have been confined to the liver - bit I seem to be getting new mets every few months now ! I have had two liver resections, one Rfa , one ire and now a microwave ablation . I was Dx December 2011. Had Folfox and erbitux full treatment and an additional erbitux maintenance .

      I don't know what further to keep the recurrence In check ? Any other treatments - alternative etc that can delay recurrences air keep the ctc at bay and stop formation of new tumours or atleast delay it for a year or two
