my husband has cancer of the liver he has lost 140lbs and is haveing trouble keeping any thing down and is so weak .
He was first diagnosiedwith stomach cancer they removed the tumor and over half his stomach dr discovered spots on the liver did biopsy and it came back positive my question is how much longer can he go on? He weighed in at 355+when he got ill.
He had his surgery nov 4th 2003 he had trouble keeping any thing down so they put in a feeding tube,he stillhas problems keeping any thing down
he had his last chemo last week we have a appt for a ct to see if the chemo is working ,the last round of chemo was not doing its job.Dr said this was the last chemo he could try .
The name of the cancer he had in stomach was neuro endozerine carsonoma.
