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?
