Topic: Cholangiocarcinoma - same size for past 18 months
My wife ws diagnozed with central CC in Aug 2006. She has 2 drains inserted to drain bile fluid. Doctors said that as this is very close to the portal vein surgery is not possible and their prognosis was not good.
It is 18 months now and the last CT scan shows that the tumor is sitting there and no change in size at all.
I had requested the Dr.s for another biopsy to reconfirm if it is cancer. They have said it is no use. In all the forums I have read people with CC succumb in 6-12 months.
I am fortunate that my wife is keeping totally normal, though feels tired once in a while due to the bile draining out.
Are there any reported cases of mis-diagnosis? And any one having similar experience of non growing cancer, can share there views and new options available.
