About 2 weeks back, my mom has been diagnosed with stage 4 klatskins tumor
- cancer of the bile duct that has spread to her liver and the lungs.
The diagnosis was done in India and the doctors did an ERCP to place metal stents that controlled the jaundice and hyper acidity that she was suffering from. Doctors here are telling me that her disease is beyond the scope of surgery and chemotherapy would just make her life difficult. I saw your post on CSN and it gave me some hope. I work in the US and was hoping to know if there were any specialized doctors/treatments you knew or anything at all I could do to save her.
She is currently admitted in Nanavati Hospital in Mumbai.
We want to bring my mom to the US for the treatment but as she is in Hospital currently I am not sure if she can take the journey. At this point I also want to explore all the treatment options I can get in India. If you can please give me more details about the treatment and the drugs that worked for you I can check for the same in India.
I would greatly appreciate any help on this.
