I am trying to make a decission, and need to know how much change will be in my life after treatment. I am still in shock and only got about half of what the doctor said yesterday. The first thing out of his mouth was transplant, before I realised it I had blurted out 'NO NOT AN OPTION, the doctors at home said so.' The next doctor said clinical trials, but only two available for gastrointestional carcanoid that moved to the liver, and it includes loosing the right side of the liver and putting radiation into the tumors in the left side with a probe, followed by the trials. This is considerable less likely to be a cure than the transplant but is the only other option. Has anyone here survived something like this?? I am trying to find out what changes may happen to my lifestyle after the treatment, I expect the treatment to be very unpleasant but what about after?? No one will tell me about possible changes I will need to make and that is extremely important in my decission. Can you help??? Or will you help????
