there.
Thank you question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Radiotherapy is unfortunately not an option in your case as far as I am concerned because we would have to apply radiotherapy to a large area in the body which can have tremendous side effects in that it can damage the healthy tissue as well.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I would appreciate it if you rate me services.

Have u heard of nano knife ?

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 2 years ago.
Yes I have heard of nano knife but it would not be possible to use that in your case with the multiple metastases that you have.
It is usually used when there is a single metastasis.
I would appreciate it if you rate me services before we proceed.
Thank you.
