Topic: My dad's condition can anyone help?
Hi, my dad was diagnosed with intrahepatic cc last year in march and had a total left lobectomy then after just six month he had a reccurence while he was on gemzar then the onc decided to change the regimen and told him to take xeloda but the progression of the sickness is still going but my dad is feeling ok he is in good shape the onc said to change again the regimen to folfox4 since 3 month ago but he wasn't very positive about the prognosis so he stopped chemotherapy and switch to alternative medicine ( another onc told me that he don't need to take the chemotherapy since the prognosis is poor let him live in peace he just have around 3 months to live!!) but I didn't told him that it was since 4 months from now and he is feeling very good he is a alkaline diet and we met a doctor who is a family friend he is working on the energy of the body he believe that he could take out the disease of his body but he said its need some time until today my dad is ok but today he decided to have a blood test to check his liver functions he had the gamma gt elevated to high to 265!! and we are waiting for the ca19-9 result for tomorrow I'm really worry about him coz the onc said he had just 3 month to live and he is still here with us and feeling ok no symptoms and a good appetite you couldn't even imagine he is sick does the gamma gt. elevated mean a bad sign I believe if he would be on chemotherapy his health would have deteriorated but he is still good
