Topic: Stable - Yippee

Hey all,

been missing in action for a while...mum had CT today and got results as well...oncologists says everything looks the same and considers her stable...mum has been off the chemo (gemzar) for 3 months now as she is unable to tolerate it and ends up with major infections each course she takes.

anyway, we will take stable anyday and revsit the situation when things change.

Cheers all
Louie

Ilias....Fantastic.  As has been mentioned, the word "stable" has taken on a different meaning in the world of Cholangiocarcinoma.  Here to the next scan with equally as exciting news.

Hey all,

I know I can always rely on my good friends on this fantastic board. Like I said we will take stable for now, eventhough tumor still there but not changed and a few new spots that have appeared.

Anyway, thanks once more
