My father was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma on January 21, 2010. They originally found two lymph nodes affected, lesions on his diaphragm, and one tumor that measured 7.5 cm. They removed one of the lymph nodes during exploratory surgery and told me that his tumor was unresectable.
He has been receiving Gemzar and Oxaliplatinum chemotherapy every week since. We have been using this therapy because the tumor is unresectable.
In August, he received a treatment of the SIR-Spheres micro-spheres. The one month scans show that the lesions on the diaphragm are gone, the one lypmh node that was remaining after surgery is now .5 mm and not worth mentioning anymore, and that the one tumor is actually two small tumors that are shrinking! One tumor has already shrunk about 1 cm!
We are so grateful for this news and blessed to have such a great team at CC! :-)
Has anyone else had luck with the Sir-Spheres?
