Topic: Elderly Patient with CC
Mom at 87 was diagnosed with advanced CC in early March after an ERCP and given a prognosis of 2-4 weeks. It has now been 12 weeks and her only symptoms are weakness, fatigue and loss of appetite. We're thrilled that she is still with us (doctors aren't always right!). We're also amazed that her severe case of jaundice has almost disappeared. How can that be if she hasn't had any treatment and is on no medication?
