    Hi all,

    To follow up – my father is doing fantastic.  After the surgery he was put on some post-operative chemotherapy pills for a couple of cycles and completed those with no issues.  He still goes for follow-up scans every 6 months and he is still in the clear!

    Hi all,

    My fathers case of cholangiocarcinoma is a tough one.  There is extensive involvement of the blood vessels and the tumor is located right at the split of the bile duct (beginning of both the left/right lobes).  Therefore, our oncologist at Sunnybrook has deemed it inoperable.  It has been extremely hard to digest.  We are currently seeking a second opinion at Toronto General / Princess Margaret, and plan on seeking a third opinion at either Jurvanski Cancer Centre in Hamilton, or Mount Sinai.

    I pray that they find a solution for this cancer.  No family deserves to go through this.

    You are all in my prayers.  I will update this post when I receive more information.

    Thank you deb & bglass for your advice and responses.  I will certainly seek a second/third/fourth opinion if they deem my fathers case un-operable.

    If anyone has dealt with a similar situation in Canada, Ontario … please recommend the top hospitals/surgeons you sought opinions from.  We plan on seeking additional opinions from the UHN (Toronto General, Toronto Western, Princess Margaret) as well as Jurvanski Cancer Center in Hamilton Ontario.
