Topic: My Introduction
My son told me about this site and from what I see it appears to be a great source for people looking for the latest information on cholangiocarcinoma. My wife was diagnosed with it February of last year and since that time she has had chemotherapy (gemzar and cisplatin, proton radiation at MGH and in January after seeing much success and shrinkage of the tumor on her liver it was declared a none issue because it was dead tissue but the cancer metastasized to the lung. Fluid was building up in her lung cavity and and she went through an operation to drain it and to put powder substance between her lung and the rib cage. She is now going through chemo again but the doctors are not optimistic, they say the chemo will buy her some time but she says she is determined to fight. She is in good spirits and she has lost about 25 lbs. through all this but she is very strong. She was perfect health before this started and one of the healthiest 67 your old ladies I know. I have some questions on clinical trials and some other treatments that I will be getting to in the next day or so.
We hope to keep her strong until we can get her into another clinical trial as we did with proton radiation. It's been a long year and a half but we are praying for more time.
