Hi Christine,

Have you tried using the search forum function at the top of the page? That will throw up any discussions on this or any other issue by the members here on the site. I can't share any personal experiences on this as my dad never had chemo of any type but am hoping for others to share their experiences with you on this.

My best wishes to you,

Gavin

Hi Monica,

Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all and sorry to hear everything that your dad is going through and please, no apologies are ever needed for the length of a post. So you go ahead and write that book if you want to and sometimes writing about things really helps. I know it helped me when I first came here when my dad was diagnosed.

Thanks for sharing everything and I too hope that things will improve dramatically when the infected port comes out. Big grrrr to infected ports! Please let us know how things go and know as well that we are all here for you. Looking forward to hearing much more from you.

My best wishes to you and your dad,

Gavin

Adjuvant Chemotherapy With Gemcitabine and Cisplatin Compared to Observation After Curative Intent Resection of Biliary Tract Cancer (ACTICCA-1)

Saw this last night on CNBC, very very interesting I thought and wanted to share it here.

http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=30 … amp;play=1

You'll probably have to wait for the advert to play out before you get to the video unless you have ad blocking software on your pc. Worth watching in my opinion even if you do have to put up with the short advert! Natural killer cells, very interesting.

And my posting this video is in absolutely no way whatsoever a recommendation to buy shares in the company in this video.
