    Hi Mary

    Thanks for your response about HAI. You have been so helpful with all of your info. I am a bit skeptical about it since my 2nd opinion Dr said it is not any good to much toxicity. Do you know if there is any of the many radiation treatments that are effective in treatment of ICC? Everyone I have spoken with has been negative about this.

    I got a 2nd opinion at Sloan Kettering (MSK) for treatment of my IHCC. They did CT scan and said surgery is not an option. I have started standard Chemo and they want me to start Hepatic Arterial Infusion (HAI) in October. Has anyone heard of this and how effective is it? It involves installing a pump in abdomen (size of hockey puck) which delivers higher doses of Chemo directly to liver to attack tumor only. They say side effects are much less. Does anyone have any info about this treatment?
