Topic: Diabetic and Diagnosed with CC
My Dad was recently diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma at the age of 55. He has had Type I Diabetes for 30 years and keeps it under pretty good control with his insulin pump. However, his tumors have grown very quickly and in locations that resection is not an option.
Dad and I are visiting with the oncologist for the 1st time on Friday, Jan 11th. Any ideas for questions to ask? I know that Diabetes can complicate treatments even more. Also, one of his tumors has grown to 6! cm. I suppose I'm wondering if chemotherapy is pointless at this time...
Any hope, ideas?
