Hi! I am glad I found this site and look forward to learning more about treatment options. My father just turned 70 and has spent this past month having tests, two stents placed and a referral to the Mayo Clinic. The dr at Mayo was hopeful that surgery could be done, but the MRCP showed the tumor has wrapped around a vein, so surgery is not an option. Sent him back to Sanford in Sioux Falls, SD where he was first diagnosed. Sanford dr is going to place a port this week and start chemo next week.
The cancer has not spread - not beyond the bile ducts and liver anyway. I am wondering if there is anything else we should explore?
