Topic: Hi there

Hi there.  I am Stella and my husband has Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma.  I have posted a question under the General Discussion under the topic  "So new... what now?"

Re: Hi there

Stella...a warm welcome from me to you.  You will receive much attention on this site because, each and everyone is so special to us all.
Please share with us a bit more.  Who diagnosed our husband?  Have you confirmed the diagnoses with other physicians treating a high volume of cholangiocarcinoma patients?  Has your husband received any type of treatment so far? 
Hugs,
Marion

Re: Hi there

Hi Marion
Thanks for replying. We are in South Africa and he is being treated at a large Oncology practice.  His histology was viewed by a number of professionals within the practice, and others.  We are satisfied that the diagnosis is correct.  Whether they have treated a high volume of cholangiocarcinoma patients, is a question I have not asked.  He is nearly finished with a course of radiation ( a few days to go) and he takes medication for pain and inflamation.  I have no idea what the future holds for us.
