I'm currently battling stage 4 liver cancer which has metastasized now all over, including my brain. I have a very large tumor in the frontal lobe, as well as two smaller ones. They are growing quickly and "infiltrating" at an aggressive rate. I'm doing chemo "at my own risk", because I'm so advanced and considered terminal, the doctors feel that the chemo could do more harm than good. The chemo is awful, but the side effects of the brain tumors are by far the worst. The headaches are unbelievable - like a mix between the worst migraine/hangover ever! Also, the confusion and seizures and short term memory loss is upsetting as well as physically painful and exhausting.
Anyone else dealing with these sorts of symptoms? What do you do to help with the pain/confusion? How do your loved ones react to it?
I really need to hear from other people dealing with the same thing.
