Topic: Dad just got diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma
Hello all... I am new to discussion groups so please bear with me.
My name is Hazel, 28 yrs. old and my dad just got diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. He will be 56 this coming Saturday. We heard the saddest news on Friday, 17th. His doctor told us that his cancer has spread to his lungs, liver and gallbladder. She said that at this point, treatment is not an option and she furthere suggests that we consider hospice care. According to her, my dad only has months to live, if that.
I was too devastated with the news. I couldn't think straight. I did not even asked questions.
IS there anybody out there in a similar situation as us? Do any of you have suggestions? Would you strongly suggest we see another doctor? (If yes, who in the Southern California and Arizona area?)
