Hi, my name is Buffie and my dad has been diagnosed with Klatskin tumor. We found this out on Dec 19 after an ERCP. My dad had not been feeling well for about 3 months prior. He stayed in the hospital in TN until Jan 6 when we brought him to the Mayo clinic in Florida. We felt like this was going to be our answer. At first the doctors were great and suggested a liver transplant. We are now in process of waiting for the insurance company. They have denied once but the doctors and appealing. Meanwhile my dad continues to loose weight and is not able to eat due to nausea. They have him on a feeding tube and even that makes him sick. This is such a horrible nightmare. Does anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, comments. Please help.
