My husband has hepatocellular carcinoma which has entered from his liver through to the right chamber of his heart via the IVC. Allopathy doctors do not show any hopes for cure but are trying to prolong his life only. Is there any medicine in ayurveda that will help him give a better life?
Have there been any clinacal trials or people who s already had a liver transplant but still has Hep-C. I hate to mention this but I m a disabled vet. who if I hadn t read my medical files and found out I had Heptocelluar carcinoma on my own...... I would be dead, right now! I have proof the VA doc s. never intended on telling me by my written records !!!. I discovered I has cancer from an MRI taken nearly two (2) years earlier from a clerck when I asked him to look up the results of a biopsy about four months afterwards. Never informed by my treating (Fellow) who naturally was taking orders from her overseer who was a, supposedly REAL Doc. and knew all of my history. If my wife and I hadn t of confronted them.... Well you know the results of them not treating me. I ve asked for the new drugs, such as the new AbbieV drug , but they say since I m already immuno suppressed.... I might develop cancer again????? Anyway... have there been any test on transplanted patients with Hep-C, which is destroying my new cancer. They also tell me....They want to wait until I get in 2nd or almost third stage liver failure. Does that make scense? Usually when I make the effort to contact someone outside of the VA.... They immediately drop contact with me as Cancer centers of America and others did! Are you the same or or you looking for money and then do nothing as they and the VA intended on doing?
My son woke up Saturday and his urine had blood in it, the color of koolaid, his gums were bleeding and he had blood spots and bruises allover his legs. He went to the Emergency Room and they took blood test. His platelets were at 3000 so they admitted him to I C U. The gave him 10 units of platelets and steroids, and it raised him to 12000 by that evening. They took ultra sound of his spleen and kidney and it looked ok. They tested him for HIV and Hepatitis C and he tested negative. They then on Sunday gave him 7 more units of platelets and more steroids. By Monday morning his platelet count was 3800. They wanted to send him home, but he refused , telling them he wanted to know what was wrong with him. They didn't do anything for him till 6 pm Monday night , they put him on more steroids and said they would check him in the morning. Should I get a second opinion and take him to another hospital?
