HI Kathy – dad was already stented and the jaundice has significantly decreased. He is also doing a bit better with food and is a tad stronger. It seems like in the region he is still confined to the bile duct tract but he metastasis to the lungs are the big challenge. I will certainly try to get him an appointment at VM as well.
An unusual problem we are facing though is that the tumor cannot be localized appropriately, it is either very small or dispered across the duct. We have no evidence of volume or area.
Thanks for the replies. We are already in communication with Dr. Gold and he already has all of my father’s diagnostics and relevant information. We have an appointment 6/7 (waiting for the bilirrubins to go down even further). I hope we are not taking too long.
