I had a cat scan last week and it showed that the tumor that was remaining on my liver has shrunk from 8cm to 2cm!!! My surgeon wants to do RFA on it. I was planning on going way for 4 days to cancun mid sept, but it looks like I will have to postpone....

Anyway I just wanted to share my news!!

Thanks,

Christele (Stage IV colon/liver April 07)

    Yipeee!! Great to hear Christele. I had RFA in March... a CT Scan 6 weeks later showed that the "zone of ablation" totally obliterated the tumour. Mine was done in open surgery. 2cm is a nice size for RFA.
    Hope it all goes well.
