I am not a medical oncologist and therefore I can't recommend any research drugs for chemo for liver cancer. Best would be to contact the medical oncologist.

Rise in CEA is concerning as it may be due to hidden cancer or recurrence. Effect of 5 FU in DPD deficiency can be very severe. Personally, I would advise to contact our medical oncologist for the alternative treatment for post surgical chemotherapy and possible radiation. He doesn't have to go through the 5FU.

It is estimated that 30% to 50% of pancreatic cancers may be attributable to dietary factors. Both butter consumption and saturated fat intake were positively associated with pancreatic cancer.Processed meats have been linked to the development of PDA (Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma or in simple words pancreatic cancer). In a prospective study of more than 200,000 people, 482 individuals developed PDA during 7 years of follow-up (Nöthlings et al, 2007). Those who had consumed the greatest amount of processed meats had a 67% increased risk of Pancreatic cancer. Diets laden with pork and red meat intake were associated with a 50% increase in pancreatic cancer risk, but poultry, fish, dairy product, and egg consumption conferred no additional risk. This comes directly from Blumgart book for hepatobiliary surgery, most reputed book in the field.

After partial pancreatectomy or in general to avoid high sugar, best is to take high protein and low carb diet. Stay away from free sugar like candy, soda, juice, cake, muffin know what I mean. Instead take fresh fruits, vegetables, avoid canned or smoked food. Exercise every day and you will be fine.

Hi all,
Welcome to our website for hepatobiliary, liver, pancreatic, general and advanced laparoscopic surgery. This website is created and maintained by Dr. Gajendra Singh for patients and their families to share their thoughts, experience, suggestions and ideas. This site was created after several patients asked if they could share experience from a former patient about their surgery. Because of the confidentiality issues any patients information can not be divulged to any one without written permission.

Several of my patients has expressed to be volunteer to this forum and to speak with any other patients to share their experience and what to expect before, during and after surgery.

This forum is open to everyone to join and share. This forum does not allow any spam, profane or derogatory language. Any user posting any kind of inappropriate material will be banned for any future access to the forum.
Thanks everyone for their help.
