Hepatocellular carcinoma was my diagnosis after treatment for hepatitis C. I plan on going through the chemoembolization sometime soon. I've been cardio cleared so we'll see what happens.

My father had transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) a month ago for 2 very small liver lesions. All was great the first week or so. Now, he is on Lactalis for chemotherapy brain type side effects. He is extremely lethargic but eating well. I wonder how long TACE effects last. All was fine at first, now it is day to day up and down.
