Topic: So new....what next
My husband was diagnosed with Intrahepatic Cholangiocarcinoma a month ago. He has undergone a course radiotherapy (radiation). He has to wait about 2 months before his next scan. For pain, he is currently using OxyNorm and OxyContin, which lmake him very sleepy. He becomes very disorientated and we do not know if this is from the medicine or the disease. As a result he has taken time off work. This is all very new to us. Before his diagnosis, we we had never heard of bile duct cancer. What I would like to know is, will he improve in health suffinciently to be able to continue working? Or do we need to start making serious decisions about his employment? It would be wonderful to hear from people who have been through this experience, and how they have coped. Thank you.
