Does anyone have any good or not so good information to share with regard to having a TAE please?

  • Hi  and welcome to the online community

    What is a TAE? 

    I think you can safely assume I haven't had one, as I don't know what the letters stand for or what it is, but if you could let me know then I could possibly point you in the direction of a group here who might be able to help.

    Hi, Thank you so much for your reply. I really appreciate it.  I am 66 and have a large liver tumour first seen in early June.  I am having a TAE in early September - it stands for Transarterial Embolization.  I am having trouble using this site and don't know how to find the right groups. If you can do anything to help me I would really appreciate it please.  Thank you so much. Steve x   I need to know how successful it is. I know it can't cure but I just want to stop it growing.  Thank you again. Steve x

  • No problem, Steve. It can take a while to find your way around and if you're unsure of anything just reply to me and I'll try and help.

    As you have a liver tumour I'm going to recommend that you join the Liver cancer forum group (link) and hopefully someone in that group will have had the same treatment that you are going to have and will be able to answer your questions.

    To join just click on the link I've created and then choose 'click to join' on the page that opens. You can then introduce yourself and post questions after selecting '+New' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'. 

    When you have a minute, it would be really useful if you could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

    Wishing you all the best with your upcoming treatment

    Thank you so much. That's all really useful. You do a great job.  I am a medic but not doing too well as a patient!  I hope your problems are now all behind you.  No more lumps and bumps!!!  :-) 

  • Glad to be able to help Slight smile

    I don't want to tempt fate, but coming up to 4 years since my diagnosis and everything's okay so far Fingers crossed
