CT scan results

We got the results of my latest CT scans which showed "mixed results". Most things showed improvement - the tumors in the lung had shrunk along with the one in my breast. That's the good news. The bad news is that the liver has developed more tumors. The doctor is talking about doing a procedure involving injecting radioactive grains into the liver which hopefully would kill the tumors without killing healthy tissue. I've read about it on the Internet and it sounds scary to me. Of course, if I don't do it, the results could be scary as well. In the meantime, I'm still taking chemo while weighing what to do next.

Hi Yvonne,

I had Sir-spheres three years ago. It sounds much scarier than it really is and has been a miracle for many! You can also find out some information and get support at www.y90support.org. Good luck and hang in there!!! I'll be happy to share my experience if you'd like. My email address is rslindley@aol.com. Suzanne
