Hello, My beautiful wife of 25+ years was diagnosed with advanced statge 4 Bile Duct Cancer 2 weeks ago and i am lost, scard and I need advice. If anyone would please help me with some questions I have I would be greatful. History of my wife, she will be 49 june 18 and has never been admitted to the hospital since the birth of our child 19+ years ago. She is fit, does not drink, never smoked and has never had any ailment that would harm the liver. we have been told its advanced stage 4, but they will give her a chance to fight this. What can I expect ? what can I do to help ? They have not given us a time line, but I feel it is not good. She has started to lose weight, holding large amounts of fluid and is starting to become weak. Her pain is not that bad according to her its just the discomfort. I think she does not want my daughter and I to know how bad the pain is. Her mind is as Sharp as ever. Please help if you can. Thank You and God Bless Jody
