Hi all my father im law is a 64 year old man and has had a Cyrotic liver/scarring of the liver for years due to an infected blood transfusion. He now has cancer of the liver and had been receiving a treatment called "tace"its a chemo that directly goes into the liver.The first 2 he received absolutely wore him down for about 2 weeks, couldn't walk or do anything for himself and caused abdomens pain but once rested he returned back to himself, the last treatment he had wasn't so straight forward. ..he ended up in hospital with an infection called SBP, swelling in the abdomen and ankles and no appetite to eat anything,he fought the infection and they sent him home last week with diuretic tablets to drain the fluid which seems to be working. He is eating b little? He drinking complan and fresh shakes..but has no energy whats so ever, can't lift himself up in bed .. Has anyone on here had any experience with the treatment" tace"and have any of you had side effects like this???
