    Well , in my case it was liver metastasis - and I have had recurrence twice Even after I had the medicines for two months - So - I can't say if they are or not - There is nothing fool proof as a cure - maybe they have helped a lot as my liver values have been quite good - or maybe they did help the liver but couldn't manage to stop the recurrence. Also - in case of gall bladder tumor - surgery is the best ...

            Hi How long has it been since u r on the HAI pump? Are u still on chemo from the HAI pump? If not, for how long have u been off chemo and haven't had any recurrence?  I have had frequent recurrences even after two resection and several ablations and was looking for a way to deal with it. I just had a TACE and IRE done for the recent recurrence - it has been two days since the IRE and 6 days since the TACE.

              Hi rain, Have you had a pharmaco genetic test done on the tumour sample ? Has this been effective ? What does the report from these tests look like ? Do they also test the tumor against the drugs for determining biological efficacy of the drug or they just report mutations and based on empirical data as to what drugs work for what mutation they report.
