@JaneBrodie --- This may not always be the case, although jaundice is basically an indicator of some sort of liver failure. My dad had a blood infection several years back, which caused jaundice. Once that was under control, he regained his normal "color". At the time, he had cirrosis of the liver, and not cancer.

I am reading all your post about liver cancer my husband was diagnosed in june 2008 with liver cancer due to hep -c he had a blood transfusesion when he was young due to bleeding elsers. He decided not to take any iv chemo which was the best choice he made. He did have 4 chemo embalazations they went through his groin through the blood vessels right to the tumors and shurnk them he had 2 tumors at that time. he did well for some time and then a tumor showed up on his sacrum bone he had radiation shrunk that one, then he had one on his collar bone and one on his rib bone had radiaction again on both areas, shrunk them .He has really done pretty well through all this treatment has been active . Just this past January he had adomen pain found 6 tumors was going to have the same treatment by going through the groin and was given a date to return for treatment he colapased at home and the one tumor went through a blood vessel and bled out in to his adomen . It was a miracle of God he made it through that he was in the hospital 22 days. he has been home now since feb 10th on palitive care. he has a nurse coming 2 days a week and has to go back to ctca in philadelphia on march 15th for check up he is now on lasixs small mg one a day. and pain patch . he is in no pain thank GOD. I feel all your pain and know how hard thisis . WE have been married 41 yrs . My prayers are with you all we also went to the burzynski clinicjan 2010 in huston texas my husband was on sodium phenylbutrate for a yr we feel really helped him until insurance would not pay for it any more.
