Hi, Laura! I have hep C and cirrhosis and had liver cancer. Doctors really don't like to predict how long a person has to live, if left untreated, but I pushed for an answer and was told 6 mos. So I agreed to go ahead with chemoembolization and then was in a study for TheraSphere. Since TheraSphere was being used by Mayo Jacksonville (FL) for the first time, there were a lot of hoops to jump through and delays. By the time I received it, it had been a year since I was told "6 months." Fortunately, it was successful and shrunk the tumor enough to allow surgery. I have been cancer free for a year now and turned 65 in March.
Your dad is so young to just give up. I don't know what treatments might be available in England, but do know that they are often ahead of the US in new treatments. You need to let your dad know that there is hope. A positive attitude goes a long way, I believe. I hope he can be encouraged to be transferred to the other hospital. But if he refuses, that's also his right. You do need to take care of yourself and your unborn child, first and foremost. Please come back and let us know what is decided and how you are doing. This forum is not limited to those living in the States.
