Topic: Hello - I'm new to this board
Hi - I'm new and I may have posted my introduction in the wrong place but I'll get the hang of this. Just found out I have cholangiocarcinoma but luckily PET scan came back negative for any spread at this point. All my blood work is "ok." This was caught by accident due to a CT scan that was done for another issue. It's taken 3 months to get to the point of finding an oncologist so it's been nerve-racking for me and my family - especially the waiting! My tumor has increased in size from 1.9 cm on June 7th to 4.5 cm on Sept. 4th. I'm told a liver resection is the best thing to do but now I have to wait for that to be scheduled. I wrote this question in another area (sorry, I don't mean to be duplicative, but I'm brand new to this site). I'm wondering if it's your experience that these tumors are fast growing. My husband passed away last March (from cancer) and my family and I are still dealing with his loss and now we've got my diagnosis to deal with. I'm doing my best to keep myself calm on behalf of myself but also my children and grandchildren but it's very hard. Thanks much for any input you can provide me with. Best wishes to all of you!
