I'm interested in what the guys at UCLA are telling you. Historically, liver transplants are not done for cancer that has mets to the liver - even if they are still looking for the original source of the cancer.

Part of the reason is that if they do a transplant the drugs the patient has to take to prevent the new liver from being rejected may allow the cancer to grow since the drug suppress the immune system.

Guess I would ask a lot more questions about their options and really dig into the information they are presenting. It sounds HIGHLY unusual - doesn't mean that they aren't speaking the truth but it's counter to practices just about everywhere else.

Unfortunately, 35 is very young for PC but not un-heard of. Good luck.
