Oh Patti I am so happy for you. I know you will have a good result and be on the right path to getting rid of those nasty tumors. I got a question though. What happens to these beads? If I read stuff on this correct they stay active for about two weeks but do they stay in the liver forever, are they eventually absorbed by the body, etc. Where are you having this done. Tina

Hey Tina, from what I understand, the seeds are smaller than a grain of sand and they do become inactive after about 16 days. I think he told me they stay in the liver/tumors but cause no harm. (I think) I am so bad at remembering what the Dr.s say because I am usually in a state of fear when I'm talking to them. I do record the meetings for just this reason so, I would have to go back and listen to the recording to say 100%..I think I am right though. Patti

Well, that's very good news, Patti - so hoping you would qualify for this - it sounds very exciting and promising.

I'll be on pins and needles until I hear from you.

Patti,

Good luck! It has been 2 weeks now since mine and I am feeling better. I had a gall bladder attack and it was painful, but the procedure itself was not. I go backon the 26th for a scan to see the results. I am praying for good news.

I will be thinking of you!! Keep me posted

Patti I have read good things about this procedure. They used to do it at the hospital where my husband is going. They stopped not because it was not effective but because of the cost. Good luck. Best wishes Paula

or is it a different type of radiation directed therapy?

The reason I ask is that Theraspheres was recommended to me as a treatment to try b/w chemo. I was not comforted by the radiologist that it was something I should do and then got 2 COMPLETELY different opinions on it as an option for me - further contributing to my confusiom.

Good Luck!!!! ((HUGS))

Peggy it is the same thing as Theraspheres, I talked with many people that have had this procedure and basically saved their lives. Have you heard of Suzanne Lindley, she comes on here from time to time but she speaks at the liver symposiums every year and travels around to speak on her amazing story. She was told to go home and basically plan her funeral, she then had the Sir spheres treatment and it saved her life, this has been 5 years ago. She is an 11 year stage IV cancer survivor. I am glad you are able to have a resection, I was told that I am not resectable and that my liver tumors are like a chocolate chip cookie. So, my options were limited. Good luck and God Bless, I will say a prayer for you tonight that everything goes well. Try and stay calm and focused, you have alot on your plate right now. Patti
