by MRCP.
previusly it was diagnosed stones obsructing CBD.

unfortunately the mass was irresectabe.it was retroportal hoding 2 branches of portal vein and making mercedes benz sign in Rt  Lt branches of CHD. Y shape.the LN biopsy revealed no malignant cells. triphasic  CT before operation revealed no spread.

after  one week we put a stent transmitting bile to duodenum.
he goes will after the stent. now total bilirubin 4 mg/dl

yesterday the oncologist tell me that he will not able to stat chemotherapy
until bilirubin goes below 2 mg/dl
he said my dad at the second stage of the disease

he will start chemo with Capcitabine500 + Eluxatin 200

is this chemo can shrinks this mass or control it?
i read alot about this cancer but unfortunately ..........
i am a doctor and i know everything about this malignant pernicious cancer
but i hope every thing goes will.

can i take another option from another dr? or  this doctor enough?

god can do every thing
