        There is a GBC Awareness page where I saw somebody something about that kind of treatment. Personally I have never even heard it mentioned in any Doc consultations I’d had.

            I can relate.  That's my story.  Incidental discovery of cancer upon having my gallbladder removed.  Then underwent liver rescection and chemo.  Almost every scan showed shading in the liver adjacent to where the gallbladder had been, they believed the shading was contusions from the surgeries.  I am a 57 year old, 6 1/2 year survivor, of Stage 2 GBC at this point.

                  I served in Iraq in 2004 with the Air National Guard.  I was diagnosed with a rare cancer in 2012.  My Oncologist believes a wartime toxic exposure caused the cancer.

                    WillieRay it sounds like you've done your homework.  Good on ya.  I'm now two years out from resection, and about a year and a half out from chemo.  Still under surveillance, get the blood checked every two months and CT Scans every six months, I'll have another scan in March 2015.  All things considered, life's good.

                      I started chemo on January 7th...  So I believe I will be done by the end of June.  On Monday I have an appt to talk with my Oncologist, so I want to ask him about three things- 1.  The chemo end date?  2.  His thoughts on how long to keep the port?  3.  My hernia, can I get it fixed? If it makes sense to fix the hernia, I though maybe just leave the port in till then, and get 'em...
