Topic: What Next?
My husband had a distal bile duct tumor and whipple surgery in September, 2011. He followed that with radiation and 5FU; and followed that with gem/cis. Now? It there are very very very small multiple nodules in the lungs. Just got back from MD Anderson; we were very disappointed. After bungling a CT scan and being very bluntly told: there's no cure, we can only try to buy more time, without having even SEEN any scans at that point. Now what? They advise back on gem/cis. My husband doesn't want to go the chemo route...Anderson told him those lung cells were probably there at the get-go....so, why go back on a chemo regimen that didn't work in the 1st place?
Help! Any alternative treatment ideas? Anything?
