I am new to the site. My father was diagnosed with stage 4 Cholangiocarcinoma back in October. They said there was no hope and were going to proceed with palliative treatment. He is only 56 and healthy as could be so we refused to take "palliative treatment" for an answer; we wanted curative. We are currentley seeing a Dr. in Houston and one of the medications he has him on is Avastin. Has anyone ever used Avastin?
I will note that the doctors who initially diagnosed him at MD Anderson said Cholangiocarcinoma was a "differential diagnosis" and they were treating him under the umbrella of gastrointestinal cancer. I guess his case is very rare.
Any advice, thoughts, or help would be much appreciated.
