My father, stage iv rectal cancer, was recently told TACE would be a good option for him. We were hopiong for surgery but with the last MRI done it showed 2 new turmors so the door was closed to that. The liver surgeon said next step is TACE. He's been on chemo every 2 weeks, had rectal surgery, and has been showing good improvement to the chemo as far as the tumors shinking until this lastest MRI.
To those that have had TACE - what has been your experience and is it possible to have the tumors shrink enough for him to be considered for surgery again?
