    Hello Mike, I hope there are some folks out there that have the opportunity to participate in the Research Study 10-C-0166. I am very familiar with the study. I was also a care-giver to my wife for over 7 years while she was battling this horrible cancer. I have seen and lived it all...things that I would not even write down on paper. For the past 11 years I have been giving folks on Cancer Compass information reg...

      Hello tpatterson, I read yopur posted message. I have never heard of this situation. But of course I am not a doctor only a previous care for my wife which battled Bile Duct Cancer for over 7 years. My strong suggestion is the get a second opinion ASAP. The Mayo Clinic is perfect. Do it NOW.... Leonard from Alamo California

            Hello Rhianivy, I just saw and read your posted message under Bile Duct Cancer. Your uncle has some serious issues. And as you describe what he is going through tells the full story. You ask, "Has he a good chance of beating this" As I mentioned in my previous response...everyone is different. Your uncle in my opinion will not beat this horrible cancer, but that is not saying he will lose this battle soon. The su...

              Hello Rhianivy, Be careful passing on positive issues regarding this procedure and the reason for this procedure. It was done in March 2014...Today is August 20th. We have not read any updates regarding the Whipple procedure and how it is dealing with the cancer. When a whipple is done it usually is dealing with a tumor at the head of the Pancreas. This is a very serious situation.  Of course it is good you g...

                  Hello rhike, Stop blaming yourself...This is one cancer you can not control. It is strong and it is deadly. I care-gave to my wife Karen for over 7 1/2 years...I believe I have seen it all and we tried it all. I will read the document you are talking and I will get back with you. In the meantime, live life your son would not want you suffer like he did. Take care Leonard From Alamo, California

                    Hello Usmc85, I see you posted your message under the heading "Dad was diagnosed with a klatskin Tumor". I then read where you said your dad had a ERCP and he came out good. This is confusing. If he was doagnesed with a Klatskin Tumor he has a serious problem. You say you don't just want to rely on conventional medicine. Well the first thing you want for your dad to get is surgery. Without sugery the problem will ...

                      One more thing Dislikecancer. The only site I know of that you are requesting is the site you are now on. CancerCompass people tell you all the things they have experienced. What you want to know is "WHATS NEXT" That is hard because everyone is different. If she goes fast consider yourself and the family lucky. A long battle is not quality of life and don't let anyone tell you different. I lived the long battle. ...

                      Hello, my name is Leonard Vinci. I live in Alamo California. Karen, my wife has been dealing with bile duct cancer and recovery for the past 7 1/2 years. We been through it all...I think. There's not much I haven't done with regard to care-giving. I'm 70 and Karen is 59. I am very interested in the cause of bile duct cancer. I'm doing my own research and I believe if we knew more about the cause of bile duct cancer we may be able to avoid the problem. NOTE: This was updated 10/20/2011...Hello again, With deep sadness I just want all my dear friends at Cancer Compass to know Karen passed away on December 2, 2010. It was very difficult the last 40 days when Karen ended her journey of life at the UCSF Medical Center. Karen was 3 days from her 60th birthday. I miss her very much. I would give anything to be able care-give 24/7 again, even though it was very hard it's nothing like living without Karen. If anyone would like to read more about Karen send me a private message at lgvinci@concast.net and I will send it to you. Thank you, Leonard Vinci from Alamo, California.
                      By the way, I am continuing to view the Cancer Compass site. I hope I can help others when that horrible question surfaces "what's next". As we know there is very little research being done on Bile Duct Cancer. That's because it is a very rare cancer and there is not more money to be made dealing with breast cancer and other more active cancers. That's too bad because everyone getting Bile Duct Cancer dies...there are no survivor's.
