Today we got some great news about my mom, she was diagnosed in april with stage IV Cholangiocarcinoma. She just finished her third round of treatment which was Gemzar, her original tumor marker was at 91 before treatment, and her most recent one is 10!!!!!!  There are no treatments scheduled as of now, they will be doing a PET scan and a repeat tumor marker in 6wks.....i just pray that the scan come out clear as well!!!!
