Topic: Stage IV - Bile duct/liver/lymph nodes
I just joined this site and am looking for some feedback.
My dad was diagnosed about 8 weeks ago with a klatskin tumor that is on the liver and the lymph nodes. No surgery option. We were told chemo would prolong lofe 6-12 months.
He had plastic stents put in in November and Metal stents in December. After 6 weeks, the jaundice is still not any better and the itching has begun.
They have not started chemo b/c of the jaundice.
Anyone ever been in this situation?
He seems to be shutting down and the doctors don't say anything.
