My dad was diagnosed the beginning of June with multifocal hepatocellular carcinoma. He has had hep C for 40 years and has stage 4 cirrhosis. Now...aside from this diagnosis he is well. Totally asymptomatic (just looking at him) is what I mean. Six tumors were found that range in size from 15mm-2cm. His dr. said not doing any treatment was a viable and understandable option. Does this sound right? He has a tumor that is very close to invading his portal vein and his dr. thinks that may limit the ablation treatment. Well, anyway, if he isn't going to be doing any medical stuff would the Gerson therapy be a good thing to do? Has anyone tried it? I seemed to be okay with the no treatment thing because the dr. seemed to make it that there was really no chance of getting ride of the cancer, but everyone here seems to be getting treatment no matter what the case. How long can I expect him to be with us??? Any thoughts?
