Hi @tearose, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I can understand your reluctance to undergo a major surgery such as a liver resection, given your experience with sepsis from gallbladder removal. You may be interested in reviewing this discussion where members @phillrachel@marybethfly4u@sheikham1@islandmomma talk about their experience with liver resection related to hemangioma.
Tearose, have the workups shown whether the lesion is benign or malignant? Have you talked to your health care team about possible localized treatment options? Is the lesion small enough that you could do minimally invasive (laparoscopic) liver surgery?
