My mum has inoperable pncreatic cancer diagnosed in November 2012, after 2 sets of chemotheraphie size of the tumor was reduced from 47 mm to 38 mm,and volume as well was reduced, as my mum (72 years old reired prof. and no previous medical condition or whatsoever, does not drink, does not smoke and eats healthy living in a beautiful coastal village in Turkey)could not tolerate chemo she was receiving we decided to go on with nanonife IRE procedure, on 30.01.2013 as she had another tumor on her breast ( which was there according to her about 30 years and not disturbing but doctors decided to remove that as well) she had 2 IRE sessions at once, first on her pancreas andon her breast, according to doctors due to her slow heartbeat rate operation has lasted around 7 hours and she is in ICU since then. Actually when I hear Nanonife patients can go on with their life one or two days after operation I am a little concerned as she was feeling really good right before operation and now trying to get better.. She has high liver enzmes rates in her bloodtests but still they do not know what is the reason and they are keeping her in ICU. So I am trying to find out what is going on with her as doctors are trying the same too.
