I also was treated with y-90 for liver cancer. I'm also interested in hearing from others about their experience with this treatment.

Hi @dmoceri31, I'm sure that @yannis and @digibson will share their experiences with Y90 treatment (radioembolization) with you. Please read through the discussion thread if you have already, starting here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/y-90-liver-cancer-treatment/

dmoceri31, would you mind also sharing your experience? When did you have Y-90 treatment? How many? How did it go?

Where are u being treated

I couldn’t say enough good about it. Had it done twice and the first shot really slowed the tumors (had 3) down and second shot killed them.. Fo now, I say that because we check every 3 months to make sure nothing more has sprung up and these are still dead, The first treatment was a breeze, back at work in one day the second made me feel like I had a screwdriver in my side for two weeks, Small price to pay if the tumors are gone, Pain would have been easier because they prescribed oxycodone which I was afraid to take most of the tine, Do you have cirrhosis that caused the tumors ti spin off or is something else causing the liver cancer?
