BRCA screening has its limits in assessing dangers for women with a family history of disease, experts say
Having had Nanoknife in our family I can tell you that it is electricity that is zapped at the tumor either suncutaneously of via open surgery. It is not any form of chemo. From our experience and others that I know of the side effects may be C-Diff and or heart issues. The heart issue is a known factor so heart medicine is part of the recovery as the human body does not like electricity. Not a major iss...
I'm really confushed as I thought you had free medical care. There's a BIG clinical study in Italy about Nanoknife but look up Dr. Moeslein at the University of Maryland as he is an Interventional Radiologist who is most experienced in the subcutaneous method and can answer all your questions. I never heard of leaving any cancer for the body to handle.
We had Nanoknife After failed surgery and chemo and radiation however, we also had chemo after Nanoknife per the Nano DR. for 6 months. We had the "open" surgery because that's what we preferred but we were also seriously considering the percutaneous procedure. We went by experience and because pre-radiation did cause damage.

Only depends on the doctor doing it.
Look up Creon and read the pamphlet. We take 10 Creon a day x 24k. 3 with each meal and 1 with snacks. They do go by weight but if there are oily stools and your mother is not eating greassy, fried or rich foods then the Creon is not enough..

My husband's tumor is at the head and blocked the bile duct.He turned yellow because of it. His stent is over 4 years old, but we were suppose to have an external drain if not the stent. Does your mother have other problems that the doctor think compromises things?
Google U.S. News and reports for Best hospitals for cancer for 2013 Than subtitle GCT.
In the beginning we were to have a drainage tube but we found a doctor who could put the stent in. Firsst doctor gave up on first try. We had it blocked twice- within one month of each other than we had a metal one put in. We had plastic because of a possible Whipple, that wasn't possible but the metal one was put in BEFORE the failed Whipple because of the blockages. Where is the stent?
