I'm new here, so please forgive me if I do something wrong. I have HCC and have been fighting it for over 2 years now. I reacted very badly to nexavar and have had several embolizations that have kept me going pretty well. I don't know if that's an option for your husband, you'd have to talk to your doctor. I've been treated at Shands at the University of Florida and they are great. Every person there has been very nice and caring in dealing with me. Teaching hospitals have a lot of cutting edge procedures and trials if it comes to that. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) this cancer is rare in the US so a lot of trials aren't being done.
If you have questions that I can help you with let me know. Keep as good an attitude about this as you can. Believe me I know it helps. Sorry I couldn't help better with the nexavar question.
