My father had a double lung transplant 6 years ago. One of the most common side effects to getting a transplant is the medication that you have to be on for the antirejection of the transplant. My Dad also has ideosympathic thrombocytopenia which is a low platelet count, this is not due to the transplant or the medication. One year after the transplant he needed to have a hip transplant as well because the medication he was on ate away at the hip socket. This last year he also had his gallbladder removed. He also has a blood clot in his arm.
Right now we are fight angiosarcoma cancer in the liver and face. It was first discovered on the side of his face. He started chemo and radiation on his face. For less than two months after treatment he was considered cancer free however after the next scan we found out that it had moved to the liver. It has now stayed in the liver and started to grow, it has also moved to his face again. Because of all the other things he has going on it has been really difficult to be aggressive with his treatment. He is currently on Doxcil and powerful chemo and he will soon be starting a low dose oral chemo as well. He also went through a process called theraspheres which are small irradiated glass beads they inject through the femoral artery up into the liver and attach the tumor cells.
I really need some help. I know that my Dad has a lot going on, but there has to be someone out there in the same boat or knows of someone that is going through the same thing. My Dad is a real fighter and my mom and I are doing everything that we can for him. I really need to know if any one has tried another treatment that was really affective. Either medical or homeopathic, I’ll try anything as this point. We also watched a video about foods that are supposed to fight this kind of cancer and the growth. Please if you have any information at all about treatments, places that have treatments that we haven’t tried or cancer centers that would be willing to help my Dad I am all ears!
