Dear Bernie,
I came down with bile duct cancer in November of 2005 at the age of 77.  Two-thirds of my liver was covered by a tumor.  After Four Months of Chemo the catscan showed the mass had disapeared. I had Yellow Jaundice until Dr. Schoenberger,of Lorain Community Hospital, inserted a stent in my duct tubes which allowed the bile to go into my digestive system.  I am given 200 MG of Gemzar and 1 MG of Decadron once a week. I have Chemo in series of Three Weeks on and One Week off. I wish your Mother well and hope she respounds to the Chemo Treatments.
