Thanks for the info Darla. My husband served in Korea, and he even drank the water from the rivers over there and ate the fish and thats where they are saying you can catch this liver fluke. Like you say I made the first step and all I can do is try. Keep me updated...thanks...Cindy

Thanks for the info and I have found quite a bit about it on the internet. This lady has a site about it and its very interesting. She is also sending me more info on it in the mail.

The VA proved her husbands CC was 100 percent service connected.

My husband uses the patch. He started on the 25's but is now using the 100's. He changes it every 3rd day and it works wonders with the pain. He uses Zofran and Phenergan for the nausea which is really good. Good luck to  you!

Hi, my name is Cindy. My husband was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma a couple months ago. He has stage 4. He has good days and bad days so far. He is taking Gemzar as his chemo. He had a port put in. I am looking for help on this site as the chemo is not fully covered. If anyone has any info on who helps with chemo co-pays it would be helpful. He was in the service in the 60s and was in Korea for a year. I am finding out about a parasite from there for drinking the water there and eating the fish. That could be the cause of this cancer, I have filed with the VA on this...does anyone have any info on this being the cause of their cancer? Thanks ahead for any info.
