i am so sorry to hear that. sad

i wish your dad is in better world now.

i don't know what to say it is very painful sad

it is one of the side effects of chemo. don't worry.

my dad has diabetes and since chemo he has to inject the insoline.

the best surgeon in IRAN for resection of the cc tumor is Dr. Nikeghbalian in Shiraz and also Dr. Malakhosseini (pedare kabede iran).

The best Dr. for putting the stent is Dr. Akhlaghpour in Tehran.

my dad's Dr. is in Tehran and he used GEM/CIS for chemotherapy and it worked.

i hope it works on your dad too. be hopeful.

Dear Lainy, i am so happy also my mom and whole my family.

my dad goes hiking every day and he is so good these days. we are hopeful now and it is also so good to see my dad hopeful and strong.

now he started to advise me to get married etc. and of course i don't like it but it feels so good that he returned to his normal life.

i appreciate so much
thank you all for your support

dear Marion
is interventional radiation necessary now? because the CT shows that the chemo works and the Dr. decided to continue chemotherapy for more 6 sessions
can we use the interventional radiation too?

Dear Lainy
thank you smile
you are right the chemo is working well but Dr said it only can help your father live a little longer.
is it possible to do a surgery after chemotherapy?

Dear  PCL1029
i think her name was mozhgan (eyelashes)
the problem is my father do worry about us and especially me. because he saved money for years to spend for my marriage and now he spent all for his treatments and as he says a lot he really want to see me marry but it is so difficult in this situation as i said my salary is about 400$ to understand how low it is i should say a 50 m^2 house cost more than 70000$ in our country and the worst car that you will never seen is about 5000$.

Dear Gavin
yes my dad is having 6 more sessions and you are right it is working well and my dad handled it well but my question is how it is working? is it a treatment that remove tumor or is it just help him live longer?

again i thank you all and i don't know how to thank you i am so happy to find here and i have the best wishes for you all.

my name is amir from Iran. i am not very good at english so please excuse me for mistakes.
7 months ago my dad diagnosed with CC (klatskin tumor). it was so terrible for us because the dr said that it has no treatment and your father will live maximum of one year. we were not disappointed and found a dr who accept to do a surgery to remove the tumor. we spent a lot of money and unfortunately the surgery was not successful the dr. said it is stage 4 and the tumor can not be removed. so we started chemotherapy and now he had 6 session of injection of Gemzar and cisplatin and he has a drainage and he is better now.
i had depression for years and now i am in the worst period of my life. the medicines hardly be found here and they are so expensive. i work for an airlines and i earn about 400 dollars a month so we are in a very bad situation.
the dr said we can only help him live a little longer. is my dad really dying?! sad(

i came here because i really need energy and sympathy. please help me.i smile always in front of my dad and my family and say he is gonna be ok soon. they have no idea that there is no hope. it is very much for me i already have depression sad please help me...
