    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I had abd pain, very similar, to an ulcer. My doctor saw me right away and treated me for an ulcer. She ordered CT pf abd and pelvis. The results we metastisized liver with an unknown source. It took weeks to decide what the primary was. They finally put together the possibility and gave it the diagnosis. The the next specialist told us it was uncurable.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am given a drug before my chemo to help minimize side effects.I can't remember the name of it but gemzar and cisplatin are the chemo drugs. After 2 more tx there will be no more cisplatin. When I was diagnoised, we found Dr using Theresperes filled with y90. It was successful in killing out existing tumors.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
