      Hello Kelly, Did they happen to mention palliative care is just a small step above Hospice Care. I am very sorry to hear that the cancer has spread to so many other locations. Kelly, the Chemo and for sure the Radiation will do nothing to help your dad. It will only make him worse. When doing Palliative Care they will just make him comfortable. I am almost sure they will be giving him Morphine if pain is involved.&...

        Hello Cur2014, Interesting comments by your dads doctor. By the way those comments do not impress me at all. Remember they are Practicing Physicians....I am emphasizing practicing. Remember Chemo and Radiation are worthless whwn Bile Duct Cancer Cells spread from the primary location. In my opinion your dads doctor's is total wrong. Surgery at the primary location first and then if the cancer did not spread do Ch...

          Hello Hockey88, Two spots on the liver and the doctor wanted to do a Whipple. That's interesting. I was under the assumption a Whipple surgery was when the tumor was at or near the head of the Pancreas and not in or around the liver. Are you saying the primary cancer tumor is at the Head of the Pancreas and cancer cell spread to the liver. Good idea to get a second opinion. Sloan Kittering in NY is also an option...

              Hey Tina, Good advise go to the MAYO Clinic. They are one of the best. Listen to the Gastro Doc...He knows he does not have any answers. Don't was too much time thinking about it...just go. How far is it from where you l;ive? Leonard

                Hi Sherry...I understand what you are hoping for. Remember one important thing...Your is suffering and hurting. We some times forget that and just want to be with them.

                  Hello Sherry, Your father is in serious trouble. As you know he in his final stage of ending his journey of life here on earth. Forget Chemo, it's no good when the cancer spreads. You should be with you father as much as possible. His life is ending. I am sorry to say these things but I have lived it and I have felt it..I cared for my wife for over 7 years while battling this horrible Cancer and I know when the e...

                    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, 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.
