Patient is in the hospital in Pakistan I am in Canada asking these questions need to help to understand what is the stage off the disease and if this is a curable should we fight ?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Need your help to better understand I have been reading the Internet I’ve come across your way of helping here

This is not cancer, so staging is not given in this disease. This is a parasite disease which has caused functions of the liver affected. This is treated surgically but since the patient has jaundice and liver functions are compromised, following medical treatment can be considered;

1) albendazole and

2 mebendazole.

Albendazole is administered in several 1-month oral doses. The optimal period of treatment ranges from 3-6 months.

This is curable.

But primary treatment is surgery.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Surgery is off the table in this case medication that to name you have mentioned that is the only option

Surgery is still the best option.

But would need an ICU for post operative care, excellent anesthesiologist during surgery and a general surgeon experienced for it.

Remember it is a parasite which has formed multiple cysts in liver affecting its function.

If these cysts are removed, patient would get normal again.

A medical treatment can be tried initially.

It will kill the parasites and further progression of disease would be arrested.

Is this helpful to you?

I want please shed some more light on this what you have said earlier this. is surgery is dangerous for a patient because of this functions of the liver affected. This is treated surgically but since the patient has jaundice and liver functions are compromised, following medical treatment can be considered;

Let us be clear about it; treatment is surgery.

But since disease has advanced, it has affected the liver significantly.

So now surgery can be risky.

A very good facility still can handle it.

Remember surgical procedure is dependent on the anesthesia. Obviously anesthesia risk has increased due to high liver enzymes and jaundice.
