Liver cancer returned

Hi I apologise is advance if my post is all over the place but I am an emotional mess. My dad is a young 73, last June he was diagnosed with diffuse B cell lymphoma after 8 rounds of chemotherapy we found out in November he had liver cancer(HCC). In December he had a partial liver resection and was told there was no sign of the liver cancer. This year he had radiation to treat the lymphoma which we just found out has been cured. But we were also told the liver cancer has come back and that treatment wouldn’t be beneficial as he has fatty liver disease and is diabetic. I was not happy hearing that and have requested a second opinion which hopefully will happen next week. I am sure the doctor is going on his years of experience etc and saying treatment wouldn’t work but isn’t everyone an individual, how can you say because it didn’t work on one person it won’t work on someone else. Sorry for venting I am just at a loss of where to go from here. Just wondering if anyone has any advice whether it be diet changes, alternative treatments? We are going to fight this, my dad is my rock, my everything. Thanks in advance
