guidance for an HCC patient on advanced stage

User Profile
dear doctors,
my father is suffering from liver cancer on an advanced stage. His alpha pheto proteins have reached up to the count of 85,300. also, recent bone scan has shown that his cancer has spread to his backbone, left scapula and even the pelvic bone. recently his left leg has started paining extremely and it has become difficult for him to walk and even sit or lie down. the liver and kidney functions have also declined a bit in the recent tests. he is taking soranib and thangio in allopathic treatments and many other homeopathic & neuropathic treatments. there is this medicine called satcon that is also a part of his dosage as adviced by a known. he is having neem, tulsi, haldi milk and wheetgrass juice as well. further more, his appetite has reduced recently but still he is having all his meals on time and also include chicken in his diet.
i am quiet scared of the recent developments and urgently need some guidance so will be highly obliged.
Thank you!

P.S.- also wanted to add here that my dad's liver is cirrhotic which makes surgery impossible.

Jas16, I've read your concern about your dad. There is a very powerful antioxidant that's necessary in supporting the liver. Have you heard of Glutathione, it is the most powerful antioxidant for your liver and every organ in your body to fight inflammation which at times results in cancer.

As your Doctor about this. You might have to research it yourself, but I can tell you there is science available now to better support your fathers liver through supplementation.

Of course through supplements we cannotmake claims to Diagnose, treat, or cure anything only help the body do what it was already design to do.

God Bless your Father!
