Hello... I am 66 yr old female who has had hep c for 25 years.... chirrosis for the past 6/7 ... recently a 4cm tumor was ablated using microwaves, rather than radiofrequency -- same technique.. only supposedly higher heat with microwaves......
never went on interferon..... if I qualify for a transplant , will I actually have it? I have some doubts...... some have done very well.. others are prisoners to meds and other support.... I live alone..... any help, advice, stories to share, or information would be greatly appreciated.....

thanks K

Hello,

You may want to consider contacting the American Cancer Society's National Cancer Information Center. Cancer Information Specialists are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-227-2345. They will be able to assist you in finding the answers to your questions.

You may also want to search for other members within the CSN to contact. The easiest way to locate other members with similar cancer types is to type keywords (such as "hepacellular carcimoma", "liver transplant", etc.) on the search bar at the top of the home page. You can refine your search by clicking on the different categories of content listed below the list of keyword matches that you get from your search. The major categories of content on CSN are discussion boards, personal web pages, etc. For example, if you are looking for a specific posting on a discussion board, you can limit your search to discussion boards only by clicking on the "discussion area" category. Remember that you must be logged in if you want to post anything to a discussion boards, view personal web pages, get into the chat room, browse the Expressions Gallery, etc.

I hope this information has been helpful.
