    Reoccurrence- liver ablation

    Hello everyone! It's been awhile since I last connected with the What Next community. Looking for your honest feedback. Has anyone gone through an ablation procedure on the liver and what was your recovery period like? My husband has had a reoccurrence (3 lesions under 3cm on his liver) after having had a liver resection back in October 2015 and NED. Additional surgery is not an option. We have consulted with his medical team, asked many questions, gotten a second opinion and are scheduled for the procedure next week. I am feeling high anxiety given his close calls during post surgery & recovery in the past.

      I am sorry that I can't actually answer your questions, but I want to say that you and your husband will be in my prayers. It sounds to me like you have done your due diligence and that the doctors are comfortable with the procedure. I pray hubby will soon be NED again.

      Best wishes on a successful treatment and a safe, speedy recovery. It sounds like you've done well with getting 2nd opinion etc. I'm sure it will all go smoothly.

      I had tumors in my liver twice. I had shaped beam radiation (the same, I think, as proton radiation). It was easy, very minimal side effects nod your liver regrows. I had cancer 5 times and now 5 years out from my last time. Cured! There is hope
