Topic: My husband diagnosed just 8 weeks ago with cc - no clue at all!
Very comforting to read your cheery outlooks and warming messages on this rare and devastating cancer. Stan's ducts too "strictured" to stent so he's just had Bag II placed only hours ago to get that bile moving. Thursday (Jan 4) he will undergo demanding surgery to resection and hopefully find that cure through surgery at Wake Forest Univ Baptist Hospital by a fine John Hopkins trained surgeon. We hope that will be the end of it all - removal - just the removal of the cancer and that that will be The Cure.
This web site certainly gives newly diagnosed folks hope as you all seem to be on the cusp of what's happening in this field and your suggestions are golden.......
Mu husband had ulcerative colitis (also out of the blue) in 2001 and we have learned this condition does very frequently arise out of that......shouldn't people who have this condition be warned that they could eventually get cc???? Their livers could then be closely monitored and perhaps this cancer could be avoided altogether.
It's 2007...........hopefully things will get better...........thanks to all.............
