      You might drop a line on the page of @FreeBird he is the caregiver for his father, and I remember he had some issues with jaundice. His father has had lung cancer and now pancreatic. He can probably help.

      I can tell you some simple ways to help the liver.

      Milk thistle (cpsules or ground seeds drunk as tea), artichokes (capsules or eaten),turmeric (curcumin capsules or pure turmeric spice, fresh root or dried and powdered), cinnamon, ginger (fresh with juice or as tea or with food), raspberry leaf tea (full of vitamins), olive leaf tea (mildly antiviral & antiseptic), alfalfa leaf tea, oregon grape root (both anti cancer & good for liver).

      A nice thing about these teas and foods is that you can mix them altogether without problem. Of course, speak with your doctor before making radical changes. I've no idea about interaction with meds you may be taking. Licorice root is a liver help which, unlike the others, needs to be used with caution and for not longer than a week or so without break.

      Has anyone mentioned "radiofrequency ablation" to you?

      Best wishes

      I did have 70% of my liver cancers. My doctor bombarded me with chemo for 3 weeks, once a week. Then backed off a bit because of my white count. My liver isn't cured but is better.
