I am starting proton beam radiation for liver cancer next week. I would like to learn from and share with others. Angie
Hi @padovani, welcome to Connect.
I don't recall any members talking about proton beam therapy specifically related to liver cancer. However several have mentioned it in the Brain Tumor group as well as related to prostate cancer and other cancers. @cayandray and @sheilazejdlik shared their experiences in these 2 discussions:
– Proton Therapy travel and recommendation https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/proton-therapy-travel-and-recommendation/
– My experience with proton beam therapy & breast cancer https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/breast-cancer-diagnosis-in-february-2016/
Additionally, you can connect with @gene1234 @japv2001 @tinasantos and others talking about liver cancer here:

Padovani, are you getting proton beam alone or along with other treatments like surgery, chemo or immunotherapy?

How are you doing, @padovani? When you get a chance, I'd love to get an update.
I am fine as of today after my second treatment. Great team, I am told any side effects will be a week or twovaway. First chat with my docs later today
