Liver Transplant Hospitals In Hyderabad

LIVER Transplant

Liver damage from cirrhosis cannot be reversed, but treatment can stop or delay further progression and reduce complications. Treatment depends on the cause of cirrhosis and any complications a person is experiencing. Regardless of the cause of cirrhosis, it is essential that every patient avoid all substances, habits and drugs that may further damage the liver or cause complications or liver failure…..

There have been over 60 different liver diseases treated with liver transplantation. However, there are several conditions that are more commonly treated with this procedure. They are frequently conditions that cause chronic or continuing liver inflammation. As the inflammation heals, fibrous tissue forms, much like a scar forms when a cut in the skin heals. Severe and advanced scarring of the liver is called Cirrhosis. Cirrhosis is not reversible and leads to end stage liver disease….

Live Donor Liver Transplant

Living liver donation Introduction : -

Liver donation is possible from a living donor who is a relative of the recipient who can donate half his/her liver. The donor operation is entirely safe and the half liver quickly regenerates in both the donor and the recipient in a few weeks. In the first few days after operation even when regeneration is not complete, the half liver is enough to maintain normal donor functions due to the immense reserve in the liver…..

Children’s Liver Transplant

A liver transplant is recommended for children who have serious liver dysfunction and will not be able to live without having the liver replaced.

  3. QUESTION:
    Cancer Survival Rate Question?
    My husband has stage 4 lung/liver cancer. I dont have the technical name but basically its lung cancer living inside his liver(along with two other types they couldnt identify or at least thats what they said). They could not be sure exactly where the origin was even tho the main cancer they found in his liver identifies as lung.

    He was told around 2 years with treatment. However, the chemo he was on his marrow couldnt tolerate so we had to stop. They had no other chemo meds they thought would be helpful or the like. So right now he is not being treated as they dont have a game plan really.

    Does anyone have a good website about survival rates for this type of cancer. He was told 2 yrs with treatment but that shifted to 1-2 yrs and now noones talking and since he cant do chemo and he
    was hit and miss with it as is once his platelets started dropping and not wanting to come back up…where does this leave us?

    I just want an idea for my own mental knowledge. Thank you for any help given!
    SUZE~because they dont know the origin radiology was out of the question. As for oral drugs they want to start him on something called Tarceva but he is very weary about taking it because of the side effects especially the bleeding part cuz his spleen is very enlarged.

    The original diagnosis was undefined small cell carcinoma. However, on the screen in the doctors office Ive seen the word A—carcinoma(word reminded me of arachnicarcinoma, cant recall the exact spelling)with unknown origin.
    Those are the only things I know about the specific name. During his sporatic chemo session and two sets of scans done there has been no real growth nor shrinkage. Its basically stayed the same with the exception of his spleen that keeps growing.

    • ANSWER:
      I am so sorry, but small cell lung cancer are aggressive and without treatment I would not expect him to survive more than 9 months or so.
      Please talk to his doctor about hospice he may not need it right now, but when he does you will not have to think about. They are great about answering your questions and managing pain. The time has come where you need to concentrate on the quality of the life he has left not the number of months.
      Best wishes.

      P.S.
      If he has 2 cancers the other one is probably adenocarcinoma.

  4. QUESTION:
    What do you think of this article…was McCain being transparent when….?
    asked to release his medical records?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/30/new-urgency-over-mccain-m_n_130298.html

    Specifically, here is an excerpt:

    Provided with only a scant review of the information, questions have begun to rise as to the danger of McCain’s most recent bout with cancer. Bronow noted that there are two reports detailing the stage of McCain’s latest (his fourth) bout with melanoma. One report put it at a stage 2a, which has a relatively high five-year survival rate; another put it at a stage 3b, which is much more dire in nature.

    “As a dermatologist, if I hear about a stage three melanoma, I say ‘My God this guy is walking on nails here,” said Bronow. “There is that much difference between a stage 2 and a stage 3.”

    Asked to detail his notes, Gupta said the pathology report – which lists the size and other attributes of the cancer removed – indicated a stage 2a:

    “It was 2 centimeters across, 0.22 centimeters deep, and not ulcerated, which gives him a 66 percent survival rate over ten years. Melanoma is a particularly aggressive cancer. Mainly because skin is the largest organ in the body it can spread to the lungs, liver and the brain… Most of the occurrences will occur right away. I am reassured by the fact that it has been eight years now and there hasn’t been a reemergence of that melanoma.”

    Apparently none of the news stations will touch this subject…I cant imagine WHY.

    • ANSWER:
      With everything else that’s gone on why should news like this be any more of a surprise than anything else?
