secondary liver cancer
hi anyone in the same boat,
my husband was diagnosed with bowel cancer approx.2006 he had the tumour removed and at the time they told us one of his lymph nodes was slightly enlarged so advised chemo tablet form i think it was something l.ike capacebitine excuse wrong spelling. this drug wiped him out totally and he could not even pick up a cup so after 15 weeks of a 24 week course they decided to take him off it and let him recouperate and see what happened.
everything was going well and we thought we were ok until february 08 when we were told it had then gone to his liver and that it was a terminal condition
he had more chemo through a pic line completed the course but they have told us there is not much more they can do.since then a hole has developed on the outside of his tummy and is leaking the most foul smelling liquid i think it is called a fistula.before this opened up on his tummy he was feeling pretty rough but it has since made him feel slightly better now this is leaving his system, so my question is has this happened to anyone you know and is it a sign of the end.any comments would be appreciated thanks sue
