Ocotoman, please share your story again. I asked you a few questions on another post but I don't think you saw it. So you never had surgery and had mets to liver? My husband is in the same boat. His first round of chemo and radiation had no effect on the tumor and he now has mets to the liver. This round of chemo is a doozy. He's in a fog and is out of it most of the time. How did you maintain your weight while changing your diet? That's our biggest problem. When he does eat, we try to make it count and that usually doesn't include veggies.
