    Hello Friends, Just wanted to thank you all for a place to go to get info cause when the diagnosis comes you just need all the info you can get. My husband passed on Sunday after a 2.5 year battle with stage 4 cancer. If it helps anyone at all, he was really really good until the last 24 hours of his life. You would never know he had cancer. So be kind everyone cause you never know what anyone is going thru.

      I am so sorry for your loss, but I am grateful to learn that he did not suffer. We are a family here.

    Anyone have experience with SIRT Y90?

      I don't have personal experience, but I've known several people who have had Y90. The procedure itself seems to relatively easy in terms of recovery. Not everyone is a candidate as it depends on the location of your tumors. It's definitely worth asking about.

      I recently had this procedure for Mets in the liver. It was a three part procedure. The first was mapping of the liver, second was the injection of the spheres into the right side and lastly into the left. The procedure itself is easy and done as an outpatient. Recovery was fine- felt like I had the flu after the first injection. Fatigue after both. Don’t have results related to efficacy as scans have to be done a couple months after. That time frame gives the radioactive isotopes time to shrink the tumors. Hope that info helps.

      Thank you GeeKay, Doctor said he will bring it up to the liver board who meets once a week to see if my hubs is a candidate. He does also have a few small enlarged lymoh nodes so he wasn't sure if he was a good candidate. Im hoping cause I think it will be better than LonSurf
