Dear All

hi I am new here & know little about Cholangiocarcinoma based on my internet search.

My Mom is diagnosed with CC on 6 July 2013. Initially it was jaundice & was not healing with treatment, instead she lost wait. Doc proscribed CT &  later we found it is CC. Soon after she had surgery on 12 July 2013. Before & after Surgery there is no pain anywhere in stomach. After surgery  rashes & fever is gone. She is recovering, health is better then before & she is eating willingly.

Now after op reports say different story, earlier we were informed it is first stage of cc but now with the new after op report doc said it is second stage.
(can anyone explain me about stages & there effects)

we asked the doc about after surgery diet can given to get strength but the team said she can eat anything as long as she can digest. She is eating normally & no digestion problems.

Doctor recommended  "chemo & radio"  sad . but I know her body is not that healthy to tolerate chemo & radio together. I have seen chemo effects in hospital & i don't want my mother to go through that pains.

I need to know nutrition & supplements names which can be given to regain the strength before, during & after chemo.

is there anyway to avoid chemo?

Thanks
