: I don't understand much about this cancer and most sites are to clinical for me to get much from. This cancer is secondary, they have not and might not find the primary cancer. At first we thought there were only a few spots however now we are told there are a large number of spots on the liver. They start chemo on the 27. What do I expect ? How can I be prepared?
: Is there any help they don't give her more than two months if this 2 day chemo doesn't work. I have small children how do I explain it to them?
: thanks for any help
antifarnesyl agents should be tried empirically. the arthritis drug clinoril(sulindac) may be helpful. it makes the pc cells commit suicide.
