            Hello Tina, Well that's sounds great that your problem according to your medical team is not related to cancer...that my friend is great news. But I am still concerned about your bile not flowing through the correct path of travel to your intestines. Something is not working correctly. Blood has a specific path of travel and I believe bile also has a specific path to travel and it is not out your mouth, I hope you ...

              Hello Brian, This is Leonard (aka Solutions), I'm sure you remember me. I hope you are doing well. I remember you were one great care-giver for your brother Bruce. Are you still in the Islands? As you may remember I care-gave for over years to Karen my wife. At the end in 2010 we tried for Clinical Trials but it was way too late in the process. You may remember Karen was diagnosed in April 2003 and battle it all t...

                  Hello Zluna, Take a set back, breath. Sometimes that don't say much because they are in a learning curve. They also sometimes do do want to commit until they know more.  I am surprised they didn't do the Endoscopy before the MRI, but they all do things differently. I am interested with thr results of the up coming Endoscopy. That should show a lot with regards to a possible blockage. In the meantime, stay ...

                      Sorry for addressing you as a number but I have no first name to use. So hello K2626, I am assuming the CPMC is the Cal/Pacific medical center...right? Please let me know the name of the doctor or doctors that are caring for you at UCSF. My Wife Karen and I spent over 7 yearsgoing back and forth to UCSF on the hill and the Mt. Zion UCSF facility. I hope the doctor's at UCSF can deal with horrible cancer issue. Is...

                      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.
