Husband had 4 chemo embolization tmts of adriamycin which resulted in 25% shrinkage. He takes Nexavar twice daily which he will remain on as long as the tumors are not growing. He seems to be doing well, doesnt feel the greatest tho. Not much energy and no appetite. Hope this helps and certainly wish you well. God bless you.
