Hello Guys my name is John and my dad has Cholangiocarnoma since december 2007. The first cancer my dad had was Lymphoma in 2005 and went to chemo successfully so he was in remission stage. After he started working out and eating the healthiest diet you can think of. On December 07, 2007 we all went on a family cruise and we notice his skin was turning yellow. So we went to the doctor and he was diagnosed with cc with jaundice being one of the side effects. He then started his chemo and finish his chemo on 05/01/08. Then on 05/02/08 he started feeling very sick,skin was very pale, also having chills and then we had to take to the ER. They found out that he had an infection and also found out the tumor was spreading all over his bile duct. The plan was he would take antibiotics for 2 weeks and they would start chemo again only if his bilurubin would be below 5 if not they can't start chemo and they predicted only 3 months to live. The infection went away but his bilurubin was very high,in fact it was 15. So the doctor told us today that he would go to a hospice facility or he has the option to go back home to spend his last days and the hospice would set up all the equipment and have the nurses come to the house. I just feel really depressed and sad right now, also helpless. I was wondering if anybody has ran across this situation and have any other options because the doctor told us right now his cancer is the last stage and critical and there is no other options. Any comments or feedback would be appreciated.
