Hi,

My father has stage IV lung cancer, that has spread to the liver. We have tried every type of chemo possible and nothing works on the liver. His mass is 14cm, a little large. He is willing to continue to fight. He feels weak alot, and now doesn't want to eat much, but he keeps trying. does anyone have any suggestions or words of wisdom?

thanks,
believer

My dads colon cancer spread to his liver 2 1/2 yrs ago; they resected 1/2 of his liver & he has lived a very productive life sinse. We have just found out it has returned and are waiting for treatment plan. The liver is a large organ and can regenerate. You have probably already thought of this option, but thought i'd share.
