Lets make it very clear that Sorafenib is only indicated when patient is having childclass A cirrhosis with multifocal HCCa and involment of portal vein as thrombosis. If after sorafenib use liver decompensated and cirhosis developed to end stage liver disease or patient have serious side effects like hand and foot syndrome or Diarrhea. This is where we called end of the road for patient.
I am sorry but your patient is probably having advance stage cancer no one help you. Send your patient CT and other labs to me i will review your case
