    Hey, John. My name is Ali and I'm a 23 year old liver cancer patient in Cincinnati, OH. Getting cancer at our age is a real raw deal because we're already having to deal with being on our own for pretty much the first time and then in the midst of the bills and chaos, this gets thrown in to our laps. Anyway just a shout out from one 20 something to another, hope you're chemotherapy is going well and with minimal side effects!

      Had similar case HCC, and undergone partial liver removal. 1st onco prescribed full dose of nexavar ( 4 tablets/day) and experienced almost all side effects of the chemo pill after 10 days of taking it., my onco explained its a normal reaction but I was having nose bleed and elevated BP. Went to another onco and advised me to lower the dose to 2 (tablets/ day), and since I lowered the dose, I tolerated the chemo pill very well without side effects and been taking it for more than a year now, and my AFP level keeps coming down, thanks God. Hope and pray that you will be able to adjust with the side effects and tolerate the chemo pill. GodBless!!!
