Topic: A question about the results of chemo with radiotherapy
Hi everybody. I'm very pleased to have found this forum. I"m just learning about CC and have quite a lot of questions.
My lovely mother (66) was diagnosed with an extra-hepatic tumour (non-resectable) several weeks ago. Apparently the cancer is contained in the bile duct. She will start chemo soon for a few months, and then, all being well, she should have chemo with radiotherapy after that. The objective of the chemo/radio is apparently to eliminate the tumour completely. Everything I've read suggests that CC is only curable through surgery, so I'm interested to know whether others have had an experience of eliminating this cancer without surgery. I understand that this is quite a new treatment avenue.
Sorry if I am being a bit vague: I haven't actually been to any of the med appointments so my info is a bit sketchy.
Thanks in advance!
