Hello everyone. Unfortunately husband was diagnosed in August w/intrahepatic bile duct cancer non respectable. Three large timers on liver, several lymph nodes enlarged in stomach. Blood test for tumor marker was 24000, started Gemara/cisplatin cycle in Oct, finished cycle not responding. New chemo 5fu /oxiplatin(sp?) combo and it is wearing him down!
Love dr except he does not tell prognosis ever per nurse. All we officially know is no cure just possible treatment, no staging. husband is in denial thinks he has years to fight this, I have read research info, average median survival 6 months from my research. I am firm believer in mind having power over physical condition but I need to know something! Hubby's pain is increasing blood sugars sky high, has had potassium levels too high.....just so much. And I know that you all understand.
Sorry to have gone on just feels good to get this out finally, little support.
Thanks for listening, any input appreciated!
