colorectal liver metastases

This is the complete case history of my father who is 57yr old.

1. He was diagnosed with CARCINOMA COLON in August 2007 and was operated successfully for the same. After that he went under 6 cycles of chemotherapy as a preventive measure for recurrence.
2. Then in July 2009 he was diagnosed with LIVER METASTASES that consists of a large tumor in the right lobe of liver(Segment 7) and abutting RHV & IVC. There were no physical symptoms present. He was operated for the same in august 2009 but surgical excision was not successful due to the risk involved in excision of the tumor.
3. TACE was performed in September 2009 but was unsuccessful.
4. Then he went under 12 cycles of chemotherapy from march 2010 to June 2010. The CT scan review showed decrease in size of tumor from 8cmX7cm(earlier) to 6cmX4cm(post-chemo). In addition to that the CT scan also showed a THROMBUS in the LEFT PORTAL VEIN and PET-CT confirmed it as a BLAND THROMBUS.
5. Surgical advice was taken and the surgeons planned right lobe resection of the liver but advised to first perform LEFT PORTAL VEIN STENTING in order to open the blood supply to left lobe of liver. The LPV STENTING was done in July 2010 and even after stenting there was minimal blood flow in the left lobe of liver.
6. Then ballooning test was performed in which temporarily ballooning was done in the main portal vein to check the blood flow in the left portal vein but there was the same minimal flow. The doctors said that there is only one active small branch of vein in the left lobe and rest other small branches are blocked.
7. So, the surgical resection of right lobe became impossible due to improper blood supply to the left lobe.

So now he has started taking ayurvedic medicine for the problem.

Physical conditions-

NO MAJOR DIGESTIVE PROBLEM(sometimes gastric troubles)
NO CONSIDERABLE WEIGHT LOSS(however there was weight loss during chemo but he recovered later)

Blood tests-

LFT NORMAL(till date normal)
CEA - 56
CA19.9 - 29

CT & PET-CT (JULY 2010) -

Ill defined hypodense lesion(7.4cmX6.2cm) in Segment 7 & Segment 8 of liver abutting RHV & IVC.

I just want to know if there is a cure for this in homeopathy, if not for the tumor then atleast for the thrombuses in the left lobe of liver so that surgical resection becomes possible.
