Talex....I am sorry to hear about your Mom's diagnoses but would like to welcome you to our site. I would, as Sara had mentioned, make an appointment with Dr. Venook at UCSF. This meeting will inform you about possible treatment protocols available to your Mom which may include, resection, chemotherapy and/or radiation or, possibly, a clinical trial currently open to bile duct cancer patients. Due to the amount of information coming your way it might be helpful for you to take notes and/or tape the conversation. And, please stay in touch.
Sending tons of good wishes your way,
