Thread: Friend Diagnosed with Liver cancer

    Friend Diagnosed with Liver cancer

    One of my dear friends had stomach cancer last year, and had his stomach entirely removed. We took him back to the hospital because he wasn't feeling good about 4 weeks ago. They then diagnosed him with stage IV Liver cancer. He has gone down hill fast. He was then diagnosed with cancer in his bones in his back and neck. His liver has pretty much swollen and taken over his entire abdomen. His feet are swollen as well. He has dropped a lot of weight in just the past week, and looks worse day by day. They said he only has a few days, I was just wondering what some of the signs are? The Dr wasn't very clear about any of.

    Thanks for any and all support!

    Hello. Welcome to the forum. I am so very sorry to read about your friend's past cancer and now this one. Life seems so very unfair at times.

    Regarding end of life issues I think the dying process despite what illness or Cancer one is experiencing is more or less the same in the signs of life coming to a close.


    Others here may have better knowledge or sites for you to read.
    Once again I am so sorry.
