Hi everyone! It is very helpful reading your stories. My Mom recently had a Interventional Radiology appointment and the doctor is 90% sure she has Klatskin Cancer. She started having pains in her chest and lower back and the pain was becoming more frequent at night and once in awhile she would vomit and feel better. Needless to say she had an ultrasound, ct scan with contrast and ERCP, bile ducts dilated is what they said. The ERCP was not successful, as the blockage was located at the pancreatic duct and common duct and the GI doc was unable to get in. Then she had a MRCP which also was worthless other than YES, she has dilated bile ducts. That is why we had to have the IR doc put in a drain and take a look around and biopsy if needed. The results come in today or tomorrow. She is in pain and is nausious. She is hungry but when she eats the bile comes up and she looses her appetite. I am worried and wonder what could be done. I do work at a hospital and have a expert surgeon that specializes in the Whipple but honestly do not think she will want to do that. She is 76 years old and in 2008 we lost Dad and I think she wants to be with him. Does anyone have any ideas? I am at a loss on what to do. I have had the hospital fax over all her records for a second opinion and all the tests she has had has been inclusive. Now we wait on the biopsy results. I am praying for her every second. After all she is not only my mother but my best friend. Thank you for your support and advice!
