Anyone experienced abdominal fluid due to liver tumors? Mom is in ER as her belly was swelled up and she was having hard time breathing. CT reveals fluid due to large tumors in liver . She is scheduled for radiation on Tuesday to spin Mets and doc cancelled her carbo/taxol infusion as he found a spot for her in a trial xmab20717 which is similar to ipi/nivo
I am less hopeful of the trial seeing she only progressed on ipi/nivo last year . I don’t know why he is so hung up o this particular trial.
Her biggest liver tumors are 7cm,5 cm , 4 cm and 3 cm with many innumerable ones. If the trial doesn’t work I think then there will be no time left to do anything else. It’s been 3 months I have been trying to get her on some treatment at UCSF. Multiple appointments and still no treatment only thing I have been hearing is we are looking at options. Meanwhile her disease progressed like a fire and she started to decline.
Sorry for the vent here.
Getting back to my question does anyon has any experience with abdominal fluid from tumors and has recovered from it ?
