My wife was due to start her 2nd cycle of chemo today but the blood test she had yesterday showed that liver was raised from 40 (pre 1st cycle) to 140.They didn't seem to know why and did not proceed with the chemo today.She has further blood tests next week to see if it has gone down.Anyone had this or can offer any insight? Tnks

    The team will not add additional stress to your Wife's Liver by adding a chemo drug to her system, the Liver is such an important organ that has the ability to repair itself, it may be that there is an infection that needs to clear before Chemo can be offered, her oncology team should be able to offer you more advise.

    Hopefully her next treatment will be offered soon.
