I discovered I had cc in November 2011. I was told I had two months.. I was then living in France. They, rather reluctantly, gave me a resection which took 10 hours. I got through that then had serious complications due to a leaking bile duct. I got through that and then had radiation and a course of Xeloda, finishing treatment in May 2012. In July 2013 a scan revealed cc had returned in lymph nodes close to my aorta. Six months of harsh gemcitabine and cisplatin followed with good shrinkage results. I have 5 tumours.
My advice for anyone going through this treatment is sleep whenever you want, stay positive, laugh every day and eat well ... I avoided red meat, dairy to a minimum, very limited sugar, but everything else in moderation. I firmly believe in sleep, no stress, fun and laughter..
I am now investigating nanoknife (prof Leen at The Princess Grace in London is a great starting point ... he's very honest and approachable.
Live life to full darling.
