Topic: My husband's surgery was successfull

Just wanted to pass on to everyone that the surgery for my husband by Dr. Jenkins at the Lahey Clinic in Mass. was a total success.  Contrary to the belief of two surgeons one being world renowned Dr. Jenkins and his team gave my husband a chance for life.  I will give a more detailed account within the next few days.  Also, I want to pass on that we are from the west coast (San Francisco area) yet we still chose to have Dr. Jenkins perform the surgery since according to my research in re: to bile duct cancer,  and the help of other doctors Dr. Jenkins stood out for many reasons some of which I will explain in more detail within the next few days.   Thanks again to this wonderful organization because of which I found Dr. Jenkins.

Wonderful news! 
I was behind on posts and had just reponded to your first message saying you had found Dr. Jenkins a few minutes ago by asking for an update.
I then went looking for more from you and this is the best possible news!
May your husband have an easy recovery.  Please tell him I would be happy to speak with him personally if I can be of any help.

Peter, you are the person I was looking for.  Dr. Jenkins remembered you since I had told him about my finding his name on this website through you.  Yes, I am sure that we would like to talk to you.  I am hoping to have some time this weekend to write l about our experience with this cancer and the following process leading to surgery.
