    Bats1026 - It’s wonderful that you facilitated your friend being at the beach. One of my uncles did something similar - he took a trip with friends when he was diagnosed with cancer.  I don't doubt that your friend values your support and friendship.   It’s great that that some other posters are providing encouragement and information. There are some similarities between g...

      You're welcome Bats1026 and Tom. At the link, below, someone has posted an overview of bile duct cancer. A friendly caution:  the webpage discloses some grim statistics and frank facts.   http://www.cholangiocarcinoma.org/punbb/viewtopic.php?id=7620

        It appears that I cannot edit, so I want to clarify this paragraph: "The information that you have provided in your posts is not detailed enough for anyone - doctors included - to comment meaningfully about your friend’s situation. Even if you provided more details, it’s likely that most attempts at answering would involve alot of speculation." Clarification: With more information doctors could...

          Hello bats1026,  I am not a medical professional. I know someone who has gallbladder cancer which, like bile duct cancer, is a cancer of the biliary tract.  The information that you have provided in your posts is not detailed enough for anyone - doctors included - to comment meaningfully about your friend’s situation. Even if you provided more details, it’s likely that most attempts ...

            Hello Dr Sujata Mittal, I sent some extra information (not for public consumption) using the private message feature of Cancer Compass. If you haven’t already checked, when you are signed in, click on “My Profile” [top of webpage], then click on “messages” [left hand side of profile page].  Then you will see a page that has tabs for private messages and message board...

              "Lily50 is a Stage IV gallbladder cancer survivor.   ...   You could read her older posts in which she discusses her situation." Correction - Lily50 posts mostly on Cancer Survivors Network.

                No apologies necessary. I made the suggestion because a bit more information may elicit responses from people who have relevant information or experience. I have no medical expertise.  I do have a relative whose present situation is no evidence of disease about 21 months after surgery and 14 months after chemotherapy concluded. At age 40, an ultrasound and a CT scan showed a large gallbladder mass th...

                  Hello Dr Sujata Mittal,  Lately, there is more activity on the Cancer Survivors Network board, than on this board.  Specifically, most activity is on the thread "Gallbladder Cancer - 2012 (Any Stage)." http://csn.cancer.org/node/234126 To make it easier for someone to reply, you could indicate what country your relative lives in and where he is being treated.  People from all around the world post o...

                    My first post is in moderation, but not the second one.  If the first one doesn't make it through, please pardon the clutter.

                      Hi Niki, my earlier post assumed you are in Ontario, Canada. I posted because you said that your relative was just diagnosed a couple of days ago. Biliary tract cancers are aggressive. My relative’s experience with gallbladder cancer was that it is important to move fast.
