what type of chemo did your wife have and how many treatments? i was diagnosed in early dec. o8 and have not had any jaundice yet. i have one large tumor in the liver and multiple 'satelite' tumors surrounding the big one. my 1st CT scan showed one enlarged lymph node but no tumors that had spread beyond the liver. the next CT scan showed a reduction of 25% in size of all tumors. the iv chemo has been stopped now because of difficulties with my blood counts going down too far. my next scan is scheduled for may 12.
