My 63 yo husband was diagnosed with HCC 3 1/2 weeks ago. This came out of nowhere. He is healthy. Never smoked, done drugs, nor drank a lot. No hepatitis. Minuscule cirrhosis from age , etc. doctors tell me because of portal vein thrombosis with early signs of it leading into left lobe he can't have resection or transplant. He starts y-90 theraspheres radioembolization in one week and starts Nexavar tomorrow. I am looking at living donor hospitals (Florida doesn't have any) as well as ex-vivo transplant and overseas options.
Is there anyone out there who has found success in treating a similar case? If so, what did you do and where did you go?
We have a two-year-old daughter and I am desperately seeking help.
All comments welcome and greatly appreciated!!
