Topic: Fluid buildup after Radiation
I underwent Y-90 treatment on the right side in July & then due to fluid buildup was not able to have Y-90 in Aug for left side. Started diuretics in September and then underwent 5 treatments of external beam radiation in early October.
Now having trouble with fluid buidup again even though my liver Dr doubled the dose of my diuretics. Dr appt today to see what is going on with Oncologist. We saw the Liver specialist Dr last week & he stated I likely have only 6 months if the latest radiation doesn't work.
I was diagnosed in April 2011. They gave me 3 months then.......obviously we beat that. Can someone fill us in on the progression of this awful disease? What things begin to happen or what symptoms can we expect as things get worse (of course we are praying that will not be the case & radiation will begin shrinking the tumor).
