Good luck @tigercub, I was in a similar situation to you at the end of last year and they stopped chemo in November and liver resection in January. Mine was very close to a main vein, but the chemo got to it, you never know.:x::x:

Hi @tigercub, I am feeling really good, being very careful not to lift anything too heavy, prone to hernia, after liver resection. I was in hospital for eleven days but that was because I got a urine infection due to the catheter and I was away with the fairies! And the majority of the ward, including myself, developed chest infection. Fantastic if Basingstoke are operating n your liver, do you live down that way? I nearly asked to be referred there but opted for a local hospital. Good luck with everything and let's hope they can lift the tumour away from the vein.:x::x:
