I'm desperate to find help for my husband, he was diagnosed last week with liver cancer, 9cc tumor that is invading the portal vein. Also portal vein thrombosis. He has been being monitored by a liver specialist for almost 2 years now with routine ultrasounds and bloodwork and now this tumor ~ at 9cc? Aside from the anger I'm feeling hopeless and lost. We met with an oncologist and surgeon this week and he was told he had 6-9 months worst case senario and a year or longer best case. She wants to treat with Nexavar and Yttrimin treatment. The surgeon told us that he was not a candidate for liver transplant because of the size of the tumor. (another reason for my anger as he was having ultrasounds every 4 months - why wasnt this found when the tumor was smaller and surgery could have been an option?) I refuse to accept this, there has to be other options. Please if any of you have had a similiar situation with any success in treatment - please share with me. I would be so grateful. God Bless.
