Hubby is having pain in his side. Onc says where it is hurting it is his liver. He is stage IV w/liver mets. The pain starts most of time when he sits in one position for a long time. It seems to be getting worse and happening more often.

Have any of you had this problem and do you have any suggestions?

From my readings, and we won't go into that, :). ! Give the liver as much of a break as you can! It works very hard to get the toxins out!

But I know this doesn't help you or your husband with the pain. Any surgery planned? What does your ONC say about eliviating the pain?

onc says he's not a canidate for surgery now, too many tumors 6-8 ping pong ball size and smaller. He doesn't offer any relief for the pain execpt pain pills. I just thought you guys who have been there done that might know more about how to avoid it.

So sorry your husband is having pain. I too had pain in my right side that sometimes almost doubled me over. I took pain meds sparingly,but that was just me. I hate taking pain medication. I tried eating as natural diet as I could very little red meat,low fat and no processed food. Once I started chemo the pain went away and the mets in my liver started to shrink. Hope this helps.

also could be infection in kidney/colon, dr should be able give antibiotics/check white cell count or urinalysis....hopefully it something like that---I have hade tons of those problems. Something to check and not assume it is cancer, which I always do...Pat
