Topic: Question about cholangiocarcinoma & gallbladder issues
Hi. It's been awhile since I posted, but I still come to the cholangiocarcinoma foundation website often for education & some inspiration that I need at times. My husband has had stage IV cholangiocarcinoma for a little over a year now, and has had problems with his gallbladder since his diagnosis. He has stents in both his liver and gallbladder. We have been told by his oncologist that they can't remove his gallbladder due to the difficulty of that procedure. The doctor who has been replacing the stents however, told us that it should be looked into being removed. Has anyone else had any experience with problems with the gallbladder or had it removed? My husband has been experiencing a lot of pain from it, and I don't know what to do. I feel so lost and confused sometimes! Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
