looking for info on liver cancer
Hello - I am sorry to hear about your mother in law. My grandfather (on my mom's side) was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1980. He was 62 at the time. When they operated on the colon, they discover mets to the liver, but it was too late to operate on the liver.
So, they did chemo a couple of times, I believe. He ended up very weak and down with nausea, much like your mother in law. (since I was a kid at the time, I cannot tell you from memory how much was achieved with the chemo alone). He opted/they opted to stop chemo altogether because of his weakened state.
After the last chemo was over and done with, he started to feel more like himself. He moved out to live near our family in Southern California. When I first saw him, he looked very weak and skinny. But, he loved to lay out by the pool. He started to get his strength back after a while and he started golfing again (this is all about two years after initial diagnosis.)
He lived a normal, happy life (even started dating a new lady or two, ha,ha). He lived for seven more years and passed away following an elective surgery unrelated to his liver cancer. He died from a blood-clot in his leg after the procedure.
So, there is certainly hope that she is not living in the dark, but, instead, simply living. She is very young. My grandpa was in his 60's and he did very well with an equally severe liver, although he did not have it in his lungs or bones.
Hang in there, she might bounce back and be fine for many more years - Take Care Read More At : ...
