Re: Intraoperative Assessment of the Resectability of Hilar Cholangiocarci

Hi,Gavin,
Thanks for the info.
You know i like biology; It is very interesting to learn about this technique,but I am sure some members may think "it is boring".
Briggs will stay as BEARS for a couple more years;that is music in the ears for BEAR fans like you and me. But as you know,don't bet anything until we can see what kind of  the offensive  line up will be. I am also  worry  about our famous middle line backer may be too old next year .
As always,say hi to your mum for me; I will watch more of the video you sent to me when I have more time. I am currently studying Chinese Herbal medicine formulas for CCA in Chinese. I ordered some herbs and tried it a couple times while on the off week of Xeloda and I got constipation which had the opposite effects of diarrhea when I am on Xeloda.(very interesting indeed).
The good thing about herbal medicine is the margin of safety is relatively wide ;the bad thing about herbal medicine is,unlike the western medicine practice here in the States and Europe, the unknown of the active ingredient that produces the beneficial effects.
Thanks again for the video.
God bless.

Hi Percy,

Glad that the link was of interest to you, and like you too, I find this all interesting.

Great to hear that Briggs signed an extension this week, superb news for us and I was most happy to hear this! But as well, we really need to get Matt Forte signed up too. We sooo need to do that deal as soon as possible to get ready for this season. Can't believe that it won't get down eventually. Yes Urlacher, hmmm, lets hope he can do the job again next year as we really need him. The "O" line, a bug bear of ours to say the least. This year Tice and his team will get it sorted, have faith!!! And you know that I'll be betting on our Bears again like last year! Can't wait for the season to start!

Your constipation does not sound good at all. Are you taking anything to help with that? I hope that the Chinese herbs will be of use to you Percy, and I know that there will be no one better placed to judge their benefits or not than you. I hope that they work and I look forward to hearing more about them. And as always, I will for sure say hi to my mum from you.

Enjoy the videos and you better be taking good care of yourself too! Otherwise, I will be getting on that plane to come and have words with you face to face.......

Take care,

Gavin

Hi, Marion,

I did read it long time ago. Actually that is what I am testing now using herbal extract crystal powder supplied by my Chinese former  chair person of The Herbal Medicine of Hongkong Chinese University. ( the advantage here is the quality of the supply rather than anything else ;- the most important part of the effectiveness and consistency of herbal formula products)
It is much easier to take. Just take the correct amount ( ie: 1-2teaspoonful and add them with hot water in a cup,stir and drink; more or less like taking Alka seltzer ). The hang qui tan formula is  on the "relatively cool"  side of the  property of the herbal medicine spectrum, it is still a very common formula used  for abdominal problems like diarrhea . But if a person who is on chemotherapy and takes this for a long time without understanding "the relatively cool" concept , and not now and then adding or taking some " relatively hot" property of the  herbal medicine to counteract the "relatively cool" effects ; then actually may weaken the overall health condition ( the Qi- the inner energy of the patient.)
That is why now I am testing to add the correct herbals and the correct amounts to improve the situation . It may take a while ,but I will report what I have found and if others would like to try; at least they know I am the first little hamster and not them to use  the formula.

Percy...I have just been introduced to the "warm" and "cool" concept and must say that I am quite intrigued.
Hopefully you and I we will have a chance to discuss this at the upcoming ASCO conference.  That is if we find a minute to sit and talk. As you have experienced, we are pretty busy and exhausted in the evenings.
Hugs,
Marion

Hi, Marion,
I agree i do not think we will have time to discuss this at the ASCO 2012 conference; I will be very tire after each day and I also need time to prepare for the next day topics;At, least for me,it is in par with running a marathon in energy consumption.
BTW, i am also working on one Chinese herbal formula,which is also widely use for hundred if not thousand years in Japan too ,for liver and bile duct related problems.
God bless.
