Topic: My Mother Recently diagnosed
My mother was just recently diagnosed with stage 4 cholangiocarcinoma. She has had three treatments of Gemzar, and we have been to other doctors seeking more treatment options, hoping for a better answers than we've got. Doctors say she has a year at most with treatment, another doctor said 4-6 months with treatment. This all has just come as such a shock to us all, she has no symptoms, other than she says she doesn't have much of an appetite, which we thought it was from her not eating for the week she was in the hospital. That is when we found out she had cancer, she originally went in for gall stones, had testing done, nothing was abnormal, other than gall stones, they went to take her gallbladder out and thats when they saw the cancer.
Any advise ot suggestions? we are so desperate to get better answers and help our mom, we love her so much and I can't bare the thought of loosing her :'(
