Hi Ben thanks for the reply, you are so young to have this hanging over you. I'm 67. It's good to talk to someone going through the same thing. You are only the 3rd person I've come across with liver cancer. My journey started with secondry cancer on the liver so there was a hunt for the primary which turned out to be in the bioducts of my liver. I had my 4th round of chemo yesterday and felt really crook that day but today I woke with no pain, no nausea and a bit of energy, so there's hope mate. I have a disteneded belly which apparently is due to the liver seeping fluid into it, do you have that. Apparenty it's too risky to drain it. I have also struggled with constipation, that is fun and games. I also think that a positive attitude makes all the difference although that is a bit hard when you're suffering. But you are right to enjoy the little wins. My family also has the same attitude and we engage in a lot of jokes and laughter - that is how we deal with trauma. All the best luck Ben for you and your loved ones. Cheers Kay

Hi everyone I would like to introduce myself. I have recently joined in the fight against cancer with a diagnosis of liver cancer. Although the doctors have given me a time limit I intend to blow that out of the water and am staying positive. I have just started my 2nd chemo cycle, this is a lot worse than the first one, with the nausea and lack of energy. Is there someone out there with the same diagnosis?
