Topic: Hello new to the site, looking for answers
My husband was diagnosised with CC 2 1/2 years ago. He went through surgery where they resected part of his liver, removed gallbladder, and took his small intestine and hooked up to his liver. He did fine for the 2 1/2 years then started experiencing tiredness, weakness amd jaundice. They did ct scan 2 months ago and said that he had restriction in the bilary ducts. We were sent back to the U of M Hospital where we were told that it was scar tissue. They placed a drainage tube and started stretching to get the blockage open. Now last week they rechecked his tumor marker and it went way up so they repeated a ct scan and said that he has a small liesion of his liver and several lumph nodes are enalrged. Now later this week he has to have a byopsy done on his liver because they believe it has come back.
We were told that chemo would be his only option and it was to just help him live longer. It just seems like there should be something else they should do. He is only 45 and we have 2 kids. I feel lost. All I do is cry. Just don't know what to do. I have looked every where on the internet if there are any other options.
