My brother was just diagnosed with stage 4 cholangiocarcinoma that has spread to his liver and lymph nodes. He is a Vietnam Vet and I have seen that there is a lot of information out there about the Vietnam service/cholangiocarcinoma connection. Since we live in Minneapolis, he went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester. They have said that his cancer is non resectable and also that he isn't a candidate for radiation. He will begin his first round of chemo next week. I'm not sure which chemo he will be on, but the oncologist said that he will be treated on Day 1, Day 8 and Day 22 and then have a CT scan to see whether he is responding to the treatment.
