A new discussion board experience is coming this September!
After 10 years, we're upgrading our discussion board to a new modern system. The new forum will be easier to use, mobile-friendly and loaded with new features! We'll be taking all of the existing posts and users over to the new board, you won't have to do anything. If you have any questions, we've started a thread here to discuss.

Thank u for the warm welcoming, I really appreciate.
Gavin, as of surgery I think,I qualify for living liver donor or liver transplant only but due to my really bad reaction on my first surgery to remove gall bladder n the tumor there, all the doctors believe I can't go to surgery.
My hope is if radiation works very well n infection is controlled to start chemo, if I can go one week with out high fever. Fingers crossed with Gods grace I might.
I am glad I found this group
I am in mgh hospital, yes my stents are replaced every 5 to 6 weeks. The GI ERCP Dr told me total of ten stenting is unheard of. As of the antibiotic I will mention that to the infection disease Dr hoping it will work. Thank u for welcoming me, I look forward to learn more.
I don't really know wat stage my cancer is. I had so much bad news enough I didn't ask about it. I have blockage almost all over the biliary tree. I have 8 internal stents n two intra-external drainage. It hasn't spread any where I believe not even to the lymph nodes, but too bad due to none stop infection I haven't been able to do anything but radiation.
At first only a mass was found with the gall bladder n the surgery made me very very sick due to blood infection. The blockage of bile ducts was discovered late n I was very weak that they put me on hospice for two month. After two month I insisted on trying something because I gained little energy. They decided to give me radiation n little chemo unfortunately the infection got worse. Regardless stenting n drainage.
I heard a good news earlier today, radiation is working well n is shrinking the tumors
I heard a discouraging news before that, I have many bacterias that developed resistance to most of the antibiotics n I am left with three possible antibiotics.
any body have a suggestion on wat I should do? I don't want to give up yet, it was so bad begin in hospice for two month I want to die trying with hope if that's wat it takes.
