    Hi there,

    Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all here but glad that you have now delurked as it were and joined in with us now! Hope that you will keep coming back and join in with the conversations and please keep us updated on how everything goes for you.

    That’s great that you were able to have surgery and also great to hear that you are feeling really good right now. Long may that continue! My fingers are crossed that the gem/cis does it’s job and please let us all know how that goes.

    Looking forward to hearing more from you and please know that we are here for you.

    My best wishes to you,

    Gavin

    Welcome and congratulations on being able to have surgery to remove your CC cancer. I had surgery for intrahepatic CC and then 6 rounds of gem/cis. It isn’t an “easy” thing to do, but nothing about this is easy, is it? I too, am interested in whether you had any lymph node involvement or clean margins. Even though we have different types of CC, we still are very interested. Again…welcome and hope to hear from you again soon.

    Dear ECSB, welcome to the best place to be for CC support and Congratulations on your successful surgery! I am happy that you are no longer a lurker and have joined our family. Great to hear that surgery went well as I do believe you may be our first from Yale, New Haven. Keep up the good work and please let us know how you are progressing as we truly care.

    Welcome and congratulations on the successful resection!

    I also had a successful resection this past January. Do you mind sharing more about your particulars? I assume you had perihilar CC? Did you have clear margins? Any spread to lymph nodes or elsewhere?

    Good luck with the adjuvant chemo – I choose not to go that route myself.

    Hi – I was diagnosed with a Klatskin tumor in July. I am a 51 year old female. I had a sucessful resection by a world class transplant surgeon at Yale New Haven – it was not without its challenges – but I had great care. I am now having 8 cycles of gem/cis to get microscopic cancer cells. I have been lurking but not posting – this is my first. I feel great right now and hope it lasts.

    Good luck to all, and if you are on the east coast, I would recommend the liver transplant team at Yale – they are the real deal.
