Hello,
My new reality is Intrahepatic Cholangiacarcinoma. I still have touble saying it without turning into a weeping mess. I have had Liver resection on 8.11 and the tumour was removed(8.5cm ugh) but margins and lymph nodes are all clean. recovery from the surgery was going quite well until about 4 weeks in and I developed some sort of bile leakage which lead to jaundiced and increased pain. After a few more days in hospital, a parencentesis and the addition of 2 drains, I am now back home. ERCP is scheduled for next week. I am so hopeful that this clears up the jaundice issue as the surgeon says it is necessary to get this under contol prior to chemotherapy. I am happy to find this group and read the inspiring stories.
