What Liver Cancer Survivors said about their Chemotherapies.

No chemo as no primary cancer found and chemo will only add a few months to life, yet these extra few months will be with the side-effects of chemo
7-2008 to present. Lethargic, no appetite, not able to focus for too long on anything, weight loss, strange thoughts, sleep seems to be all REM, dreams and or nightmares about Nam seem to pop up while I'm awake,anger, especially at the VA for not stepping up and admitting and approving my claims.

On going chemo regiment and had one chemoembolization.
First treatment was June 8th 7 hours between the other meds olus the chemo..Cisplatin and Gemzar.. Felt ok the day after but then started feeling very sick, achy, headache, ringing in ears, coulnt eat, weak, dizzy,tired,shaky all over I only felt well enough to go to the doctor on the 7th to have my blood drawn..saw dr and he said he would up my steroids next time and that should help second treatment was on the 8th, Just the gemzar.. Really tired and achy. Dizzy and weak. Had my shot of Lewnasta on Monday. Still fell tired and bone pain
Tried Nexavar for one day, but decided against it; bad side effects--felt cloudy, nauseated like when I was on Interferon/Ribaviron and had rectal bleeding from the Nexavar; not worth it to buy a few more months of life; discontinued
11-19 chemo pellets not sure of the name, nausea,
Nexavar for 6 months. Infusion therapy started 2 weeks ago and ongoing bi-weekly.
