Topic: From Western Australia
I just stumbled on this forum as I goggle cholangiocarcinoma on the net.
I am from Perth, Western Australia and my mother was diagnosed with CC just over a year ago. It was detected late (only by the presence of jaundice). She had radiactive sphere and chemo but only really as a interim measure. She has now stopped all treatment and well into Stage 4 with spots in her lungs as well. She has had a number of stents with the last only being a few weeks ago and with no success (i.e. she is still very jaundice).
We have her at home and we all care for her full time. My family is not too good about talking about everything and I think my dad does not want to accept the reality of the situation so it is hard to really get straight answers from him.
I just want to know what to expect over the next few weeks/months. She is pretty much bed bound so I can't imagine that she has too much longer...but no one will give me a straight answer.
So...this is a bit of call for anonymous help
