However, jaundice can be caused by other agents and processes as well.Once the causes are determined, the decision must be, do we continue on the chemo and treat the liver issues another way, or cease chemo?Possible answers are:
Change the chemotoxic agents and/or dosages so as to cause less bilirubin production.
Continue the chemo course, and administer diuretics and possibly painkillers, to treat the jaundice symptomology, and continue the chemo course.
Change other medications that may be causal.
