Diagnosed with adenocarcinoma. Currently having jaundice symptoms due to liver tumor. How to sustain this condition ?

Hi, my husband has been diagnosed with adenocarcinoma but currently has jaundice symptoms due to the liver having a tumour in it. They thought that he would have passed on by now due to the stent not working while in hospital but it appears to be working sometimes and his overall health seems to be improving. Is there any advice you can give to sustain his current condition and how long do you think this will last?

Hi Avylyle,

Welcome to healthcare magic!

You are really having very troubled times.

Adenocarcinoma in liver is a lethal tumor, due to obstructive features and jaundice these patient become drowsy and develop hepatic encephalopathy and lastly coma.

They are also vulnerable to DIC, Altered coagulation and hemorrhagic complications,

Due to drowsiness may develop aspiration pneumonia, respiratory failure etc.

I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

I wish him a better health!
