My husband, was searching the internet for 'the cure' and came upon TheraSphere therapy. I searched this site for any additional information, and found several mentions of it. Since the web site is not really set up for this kind of research, I was wondering if any of you have had any experience in this type of treatment? We have found lots of web sites describing the procedure, but am hoping to hear first hand from anyone who has actually experienced it.
Since I am fairly new here, I'll give you a recap of my husband's case....
He was diagnosed stage ivb, with mets to the liver. (about 15 tumours found in the liver) He began treatment this past February and has now undergone 4 rounds of chemotherapy. His treatment involved iv cisplatin and epirubicin followed by 2 weeks capecitabine (xeloda) orally, repeated every 3 weeks. We are currently waiting for cat scan and results to see where we stand. He is 48, and aside from the cancer has been very healthy all his life.
