Topic: Systemic Chemo - Anybody have any luck with it?
My dad was diagnosed about a year ago with intrahepatic ccc. His tumor is quite large and he was told that it was inoperable. He tried chemoemobilization without success and has had to have his stent replaced every six weeks or so. This last time the doctors at Mayo placed 2 stents and after just a few days his usual symptoms reappeared. He recently had a scan that showed lesions on his liver and is planning on taking chemo to hopefully keep the cancer from spreading.
My question is, have any of you had results with systemic chemo? If so, what type of chemo did you have and how severe were the side effects?
Thank you so much for sharing your information.
My thoughts are with everyone on this board struggling with this ugly disease.
