Hi Hilda, my husband Charlie, age 52 is also Stage IV diagnosed 5/07 and is going strong. We were told he would be gone by Christmas. Gemzar chemo last summer, chemoembolization, 60% of his liver taken out in 11/07, just finished radiation and oral chemo. I know this all sounds overwhelming and new to you. We were right where you are last May. Get 2nd, 3rd opinions if you need to. Keep reading and researching. We were fortunate enough to find a surgeon who wanted to take a chance and remove all the tumors from his liver. I pray you find what is right for Hector. We're here if you have more questions or concerns. Stay positive and strong.
Charlie's out digging up dead bushes in the yard! Take that, you 3 to 6 month naysayers!
