Topic: Hello, new member!!
Hello my husband was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma in November of 2012. He has undergone two regimens of chemo gemzar and cisplatin and then gemzar and xylota. We got to MD Anderson in April. Before that they the local surgeon said it was inoperable well MD Anderson says it is!! Surgery is set for Aug 20th. He has had a lot of difficulty with the stents....infection after infection. The stents have been replaced 4 times now. My husband is 45 years old....this isn't supposed to happen to young people we thought. So I would love to here your experiences are the similar to my husbands?? His tumor was rather large 8cm but it is local...should we be excited that they are going to do surgery or is their still a high possibility it will come back? I know lots and lots of questions. This ride has been a roller coaster ride for us
