Topic: Pinpoint radiation for inoperable klatskins???
Hi to all of you. I've been reading on and off with my sister being in and out of the hospital. Just to refresh, she has a klatskin's tumor in her bile ducts with tumors in the gall bladder and liver as well. The drs thought they could resect, but they couldn't. They put stents in which were fine for about 5 weeks but now are clogged/infected. They cleaned them but said this is going to be the norm for now.
Here's the question. Some radiologist/oncologists are suggesting pinpoint radiation for the bile duct tumors. Does anyone have any experience with that? How effective? How brutal are the side effects? She really isn't a chemo candidate at all. This seems to be the only hopeful option Thanks for reading and listening. Belle
