Hello Candy, which chemo drug did they use? Did they do radiation at the same time?
mid December I was sick with what I thought was strep throat. I went to the doctor, and they thought beginning of pneumonia which also explained my shortness of breath and fatigue. The doctor gave me Biaxin for an antibiotic, and I thought it was that that was making me nauseous, bloated and so exhausted. I hung in there about two months and then went to the doctor who had a CAT scan ordered. I got the news about March 5th. I'm a teacher, and sometime after I showered in the morning I'd get back in bed for a few minutes before I could get dressed I was that fatigued. I was nauseous all the time, short of breath, couldn't eat anything and have lost 30 pounds since about early March. I didn't show any outward jaundice but my urine was definitely way too dark...minimal pain but discomfort in my abdomen.
Candy, all the tests they have given me say I have metastasized cancer of the liver, but they can't find the primary. The blood tests were all normal except for the alpha feron protein (spelling). It was extremely high. They are only "speculating" it's cholangiocarcinoma. I don't feel so nauseous because I am eating only raw fruits, drinking a wheat grass shot each day, 12 ounces of freshly juiced carrots and eating no sugar whatsoever. This has cut my nauseousness down, but I still can't seem to get over 1,000 calories in me a day. This is a long post, and I don't even know if I answered your questions. I'll go back and check. My prayers to your loved one and your family.
