Y90 / TARE

I received the Y90 treatment on Dec.16th and just to let everyone know, it is now covered by OHIP…since early 2021 I believe.

No news yet for me as apparently it takes 3-4 months to see if it has been successful.

Hope this will be of help to someone.

@TTOL343, wishing you a good response to the Y90 treatment you had on December 16.

I wasn’t familiar with Y90 treatments and found various articles, including an interesting article at another website about a patient who received this type of treatment:

I hope you return to let us know how you are doing. We are here for you!

thanks for your timely post @TTOL343 - my husband will also be getting Y90 treatment in the coming weeks (just waiting for a jaundice issue to get resolved). We were told they'll do a ‘planning session' and 2 weeks later deliver the drug on the left side, and then a month later they'll do the same but for the right side. Is this similar to your situation?
