A good friend in his 50s was diagnosed a couple of weeks ago. They have found 5 tumors in his liver, which they said is the primary cancer, and two in his lungs, which they say are secondary. He also has hep c and is a long time smoker. Since diagnosis, he has lost much weight and quit smoking of course as he has felt so ill. He will be treated starting next week at Baylor in Fort Worth and I believe they plan to use stereotactic radiosurgery as well as chemo. Does anyone have any experience with this procedure and any thoughts on prognosis? The doctor has not discussed the issue of prognosis/life expectency with him yet.
