Hi, I got diagnosed with stage IV unresectable bile duct cancer about 3 months ago. I had jaundice and that's how it was discovered. Got a stent, some duct scrapings, laparoscopy, samples of 2 spots on the liver, all the samples were cholangiocarcinoma, so they replaced the plastic stent with a long metal one.
I opted for an immunotherapy drug trial (see post in Clinical Trials: OX-40 trial). If that doesn't do the trick, I'm considering dendritic cell therapy.
So far, I'm feeling pretty good. My blood tests are now coming back normal. I'm thinking that if I try to avoid treatments that damage the immune system, I'll have a better outcome with immune system-based treatments.
