My husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in February 2011. He has been through radiation and 2 rounds of chemo treatment. He has had two blood infections(sepsis)due to the back-up of bile. Also absess' on his liver. The latest CT scan and MRI show lesions on his liver and some necrosis. He should start the next round of chemo next week. My question is if the cancer has metastised to the liver, will the chemo he will be receiving take care of the liver as well? Thank you
