I'm not able to help you but please don't go on the internet and look it up as the information sometimes isn't very accurate and is outdated.  There might be others that will chime in to help you.  Hope they can give you some answers.

Do you mean ablation? If so, I know some people on here will be able to help you. I know very little about it, it's not available where I live. It is for lung cancer but not colon cancer mets in the lung.

It's a high frequency version of ablation, which zaps any tissue it's aimed at, namely cancer.....................................................Dave

on my liver. 

It was called a Thermal Microwave Ablation.  

That was four years two months ago, and I have been NED ever since.
