Even that was very risky for him, and we were told that it was probably not a cure, but would hopefully retard the
progress of the cancer
. And it did buy him a few months. But one of his tumors was near the hepatic artery, and they nicked something, and he began bleeding after leaving the hospital and had to be re-opened for more surgery. Keep in mind, the ablation is only an option while the tumor is small. So, if that is your choice, you cannot "watch and wait" terrribly long.
