    Hi rb122, I am pleased to hear your dad is doing pretty well. And yes you are absolutley correct, if one thing isn't working try another. Everyone of us is so different, what works for one may not work for another. There is NOTHING to lose. I hope your dad continues on his positive path to wellness. Leonard from Alamo, California

      Hello evU8bewlivM, I am sure you are real. It's just a little difficult to not address you by Joe, Sam etc. etc. But if you prefer a robotic name that find also. With regard to donating money for research to help with Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile Duct Cancer) I would still suggest what I told you in a previous post.  But of course do what you wish, it's your money. I only suggested UCSF Medical Center in San Fra...

        Hello TimCHNV, This is Leonard from Alamo California (AKA Solutions) First of all I am very sorry to hear about your 34 year old son going through this horrible. He is so young. As you most likely know this is a very rare Cancer. My wife was diagnosed with Bile Duct cancer in April 2003 and battled it to December 2, 2010. It was not a good quality of life during those 7 long years. There were good times but there ...

          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, Thank you for responding so quickly. I have been in contact with many care-givers from the UK. I have been psoting on CancerCompass for the past 14 years. My wife Karen battled the cancer for 7 1/2 horrible years. I have lived through so many horrible events. Karen was cared for at the UCSF Medical Center in San Francisco.  Karen ended her journey of life on December 2, 2010 3 day before her...

                  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, 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.
