    Hi cdee123,

    Welcome to our community.  It is always nice to hear from long-term survivors.

    My understanding from my own doctors is that while the risk of recurrence reduces over time, it never goes 100% away.  There are a few reports in the medical literature of very late recurrences (e.g., after 10 years) — such cases are apparently so rare that doctors publish articles about them in medical journals.  In my own case, I also feel the need to be vigilant in case there are long term effects of the treatments I had.  My own view as a patient is I need to be somewhat of a hypochondriac and investigate any instance where I don’t feel well, if only for my own peace of mind.

    Many illnesses can involve nausea.  Since this is bothering you, I would encourage you get it checked out with your doctor.

    Regards, Mary

    Hi, I had cholangiocarcinoma 14 years ago. For the last 2-3 weeks I am having nausea every day sometimes most of the day. Should I contact Dr. ? I had 85% of my liver removed with chemo
