Before your treatment, you will be asked to present with an empty stomach. Food and beverages are not permitted beforehand.
After the treatment, some simple precautions need to be taken during the first 24 hours following the Selective Internal Radiation Therapy (SIRT) procedure.
These precautions include:
- thorough washing of your hands after going to the toilet;
- cleaning up any spills of body fluids such as blood, urine, or stools and disposing of them in the toilet.
You will be provided with further information on these precautions by your treatment team.
After 2 weeks only 3% of the initial radiation remains and after 1 month it all has disappeared.
