Hello.Welcome to HCM forum.Very sorry to hear about your sister's problem.Once it has spread to liver and lungs,it can be assumed it has spread to other areas in the body also.That is the reason doctors are not doing any surgery as thought by you.Try other therapies like Ayurveda or homeopathy.God bless you and your sister.Good luck and thanks.

She went into hospital a couple of days ago with exteme pain in her back, her yummy was swollen and the doctors are trying to get this down. There is not anything that can be done- in ways of surgery, medcation etc etc. I am wondering what her life expectancy would be

I was in hospital yesterday after becoming unwell. I had severe sickness and stomach pains. Having conducted a CT scan I have been informed they have found a shadow on my bowels and its a strong possibility that it is cancer. I show absolutely none of the signs of bowel cancer as described anyway, but am worried obviously. As I was severely constipated at the time of the CT scan I have read it maybe that which has caused the shadow,could you please help?
