Topic: wish I had joined earlier
My name is Jules, my dad had cholangiocarcinoma. He was diagnosed in October, had a liver resection on November 8th and went into liver failure which he never recovered from. He died on January 12th. We only had 6 weeks to know that he had cancer before he had surgery.
He was an amazing person and so healthy- I can't believe he is gone. I looked at postings on this site so many times while he was in the hospital but never registered as a member. I kept hoping that this whole nightmare would be a thing of the past. He was going to recover.
The crazy thing is he didnt die of the cancer. The liver resection was successful in that respect- he was cancer free when he died. He never left ICU though.
I have never felt so alone
