Just returned from oncologist appointment.I will have port placed on Monday. The plan is to begin chemo next Wednesday 9/16. I will be taking Adriamycin and Cytoxan once every 3 weeks for 12 weeks, then I will get Taxol every 3 weeks for 12 weeks. Will repeat PET scan to see how the liver cancer is responding to treatment, then I will received Herceptin weekly for 52 weeks.If the liver doesnt respond then it sounds like I will need some intense radiation.

    I think my Oncology surgeon
    I think my Oncology surgeon has done Radiofrequency Ablation on liver tumors. Basically, it "kills" the tumor. Have you ever heard of it?

    Yes, my oncologist mentioned
    Yes, my oncologist mentioned that today. After I take my first round of chemo I will have a scan to see how the liver responds. If not she said radiofrequency ablation.
