Update on RFA

Hi everyone. Bob had the rfa done on Thursday. He is doing extremely well and I am relieved that it went so smooth. The doctor says he's pretty confident he got it all again, but it was tricky in the beginning because they had a hard time precisely seeing the mets so they gave him another contrast ct before the procedure and during. It was fairly quick and he was in recovery about an hour and a half later, back home Thursday nite. It's amazing to me that he doesn't even have a stitch LOL. (especially after having 56 staples for the liver resection) So, we go back on Dec 23 for another ct, right at this doctor's office and get the results about 15 minutes later. We'll be seeing the ONC again soon and probably another port surgery, but for now I'm just relieved that this went so well. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers . Keep the faith

Great news, Diane. I also had a RFA. It beats surgery! Take care,

So glad to hear your husband's RFA went so well! I was reading 56 stitches! I have an incision from just below the sternum to just above the pelvic bone and they didn't put anything NEAR 56 staples in! Of course, the second time they went in thankfully they used surgical glue so no additional tracks down the tummy and no holes that needed extra healing time!

Hi Diane,

I am thankful Bob's RFA went so smoothly. Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and I hope Bob recuperates quickly from this procedure.

This all sounds great. Bob is making this look easy! (although I know it is not!) I am so glad things are going well. I am feeling a lot of good vibes---the cancer is gone for good this time. Wishing you and your family a great Thanksgiving. Keep believing!
