Topic: Savannah - Newly Diagnosed
Hello , My name is Susan and my Mom was diagnosed last Friday July27th. She went in for Gall Bladder surgery on Saturday July 21st, and they noticed her liver enzymes were elevated and she had a narrowing of the bile duct. The surgeon told us of this narrowing and said that it can sometimes be caused by cancer but he also told us he saw no signs of cancer. Needless to say we were shocked by the pathology reports from her gall bladder. We were told that she has stage 2 but I don't know much more, they are scheduling a ERCP and PET scan once she heals from the gall bladder surgery, our first appt is on August the 13th. Her liver enzymes have gone back to normal and we were told her liver is fine. I am not sure what questions I should be asking and if Memorial Hospital is the place for her to seek treatment. I live in Atlanta and we have Emory here, I really wish that she would come up here but she likes her doctors there. I just want what is best for her, she is 74 and other than high blood pressure pretty healthy. Our family is devastated, I want to make sure she gets the best care possible.
