Topic: Feeling alone
Registered: Tue, 22 Jun 2010
My husband, age 75, was diagnosed with Klatskin tumor two months ago. He turned really yellow, had blood test results all winter that looked like he is in liver failure because the numbers are so high. Our family doctor sent us to a gastroenterologist that specializes in doing ERCPs. They did an ERCP and put in a stint and that doctor diagnosed him with Klatskin tumor, gave me a poor prognosis, and and sent him to an oncologist. Since then he has had all kinds of tests and it doesn't show up on any of them. He spends most of the time in his bedroom watching tv and doesn't want to know about it and the doctors we've seen since the ERCP don't really say anything concrete. I feel all alone and I don't know what to think. Does anyone have a similar experience with the diagnosing?
