My wife Dawn (47) was just diagnosed with bile duct cancer. She had a sucessful liver resection done on 1/12/06 at Rush university Hospital in Chicago. We are searching for possible treatments as the prognosis is for return of the cancer and 3 to 5 years survivability.

My husband has had cc since 2006 but we were not aware of it. He had a chest ct pre-op for bypass surgery and he had a 3 cm lesion on the liver. No one told us. A year later he had a ct for an unrelated problem and it was found-8cm. After a year of chemo for" cancer of unknown primary", which was very rough, he had surgery and it was open and close. The surgeon said he was terminal. Then we went to Johns Hopkins and he had gemzar for10 mos. which shrunk the tumor to 2.5 cm. He is scheduled for surgery at Hopkins Tues., July 8th.2008, almost a year to the day of the last surgery. Dr. Choti is hopeful. Do not give up hope even if they say it is hopeless. Put it in God's loving hands. He will guide you through it.
A huge, big thanks for spreading hope to others.
