Topic: Good News!
I just wanted to come on here and share my good news because I remember how much I was desperate to hear it a year ago.
My father was diagnosed a year ago with cholangiocarcinoma. We were told it was inoperable, wrapped around a main artery, and they gave us 6 months and no hope. My father was SO sick and lost so much weight and our whole world changed. As his only daughter I was terrified at the idea that now my father would not be at my wedding.
He has been on chemo (I believe gem/cys) ever since.
The first good news came a few months ago when the doctors told us that very very slowly, the tumor was getting smaller and that he could stay alive as long as he was on chemo. To us this was good news but my father fell into a deep depression at the thought of always having to be on chemo. He has barely left our house in months.
But today I am excited to say that they are now telling him that he may be able to stop chemo. And in 2 months he will be there to watch his only daughter get married and I will even get a dance out of him.
I don't know the details of how things will work, or if he will ever have to have chemo again ( I am sure he will) but the fact is that a year ago he was dying. There was no hope. And now, that's just not the case any more.
Just wanted to share.
