Topic: scan results
It has been a while since I posted. My mom was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma spread throughout the liver and lymphe node in June 2012 and started in July with Gemcitabine/Cisplatinum. She just finished 8 rounds of chemo without major complications. She had an enourmous drop of CA19.9 from over 140.000 to 158. her scan in October showed shrinkage of all tumours. Her scan results from January just came in and showed shrinkage BUT 3 new spots appeared. 2 in the liver and 1 in her upper right lung. This was not at all what we had expected since the CA19.9 was decreasing and she was just feeling better and better. Since the tumour broke through the chemo it has become useless and there is not much that he can do for us right now, the doctor said. There is an scan appoinment in April to how the new spots grow. All documents have been sent to an other clinic to hear their view on this case. For now it feels just so frustrating that we cannot do anything to fight this cancer.
Is there anyone with some good advice or recommendations that we can follow?
thank you very much and stay strong.
