My sister was diagnosed with fibrolamellar hepatocellular carcinoma in August 2008 and had a liver resection in October 2008. She was told that this was curative treatment and that no further treatment was needed.
They have now decided that it wasn't fibrolamellar but HCC. As there are a number of metastases, they have said that surgery is not an option. Have also said that this sort of tumour is not chemo or radio sensitive. Not sure about this as have read stories on these forums of others getting chemo. Is it just that the chemo not available in the UK??
Have got the possibility of laser surgery with Dr Rolle in Germany. Has anyone got any comments / information about this? Anything gratefully received!!
