Dear Dr Teo,
My mother who is 63 yrs old was recently diagnosed (1month) with Advanced stage HCC, liver cancer.She has been on Nexavar for 2 weeks. Yesterday, she vomited twice with fresh blood.
She is now very jaundice and she hasn’t pass stool for 2 days. I have all her medical reports and CT scan images with me.
May I know more about your treatment type and what you can possibly offer her. Where’s your clinic perhaps we can meet to discuss further. Thanks for any help you can offer.
I have read your website. Here’s my mom’s condition:
My mother’s end stage liver cancer was diagnosed bout 4 weeks ago at Hospital Selayang’s Hepatology Unit.My mom, 63 years old, was diagnosed with advanced liver cancer HCC on 23/6/2011 by her hepatologist (blood test with low albumin and high bilirubin, Ultrasound and CT scan) all suggesting enlarged nodules in her right lobe of liver with the largest located at segment IV measuring 5.9 x 5.2 cm. The right PV is thrombosed and left PV is partially thrombosed as well.
My mom has an underlying liver cirrhosis condition. Sshe has ascites and severe jaundice.
Her team of hepatologist, oncologist and radiologist have ran out of treatment options other than palliative care. AFT >39,000
Reply: This is a very serious case indeed …. I really don’t know if I could help …more so when there is bleeding. But if you think I can help you, come to Penang with all your medical reports and scan…let me have a look at them …. can come any day… except Sat or Sun.
