Topic: Bile Duct Surgery
This is part of an interview with an Oncologist at a major clinical institutions. He could not recount in detail the number of patients with CC he had treated however, he believed it to be around 250 to 300 people.
My question to him:
Even though bilary surgery is risky to say the least but more so, a guaranteed outcome of success is debateable, in your experience, where do you stand on this issue:
Clearly, why would somebody with bile duct cancer die, it is usually because of the inability to maintain bile flow, and if you can take the tumor out and reconstititue the bilary tree with a surgical hookup.....your are way ahead of the game......
The mystery is, no one can predict who would do well and who wouldn't do well from the onset. They just don't know.
