General & Family Physician Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta's  Response
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.
