If there is a subpleural nodule and liver met can both b ablated ?
Dr. Shahzad MD :

there. Thank you question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You have nodules in the adrenal gland, subpleural and in the liver.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

First of all, it is not possible to ablate all these.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Even if that is done, it will not serve the purpose because even then the root cause is still there i.e. the micromets.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The micromets have become resistant to chemotherapy.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So chemotherapy is also not an option in your case.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

It is a very difficult situation unfortunately.

I have answered your question above.
