    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 Dislikecancer, Yes the entire situation not believable. I am assuming the hopsital is a small medical center. It sounds like the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing or worse doesn't know what to do . But you may be correct when you saoshe does not want to be treated...They have many people that want to be treated and they may be focusing more on them. I think you need a second opinion ASAP a...

              Hello dislikecancer, Sorry for the slow response. I just read your posted message. Okay...Your information is very short and not much information. I see she refused Chemo and Radiation. Thats okay it is her choice. But there must be others reasons. I surgery an option? What stage is the cancer I through IV? Putting a metal stent in is not the greatest but again there is a reason. You must be very careful with ...

                      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.
