    Lainy,

    My heart goes out to you and your family.

    The day after dad passed the lights started acting up in moms house. It was strange at first but dad still continues to play with the lights. There is one side lamp in their family room that will go on randomly if all of us are in the house. I truly believe it is real as does our priest.

    lots of hugs….

    Dad has been gone for almost 6 months now and mom feels the same as you. I talked to a counselor and they said 6-9 months is the hardest for the spouse. My heart and prayers are with you.

    Hi Steve,

    I am so sorry about the news you have received. Just wanted to give you the surgeons website that operated on my father almost three years ago. He is pretty aggressive in surgery and we were told there was no way any surgeon would have attempted the surgery that he did. He was successful and cleared him of the cancer at that time. Maybe you can send him the scans if USC doesnt think they will operate. He is located in Scottsdale, AZ which is fairly close for you.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Donna,

    Our prayers are with you. I am so sorry for your loss. We will be approaching 4 months next week with the loss of my father. As the priest told us that morning in the hospital taking one day at a time maybe too much, we started with one minute at a time.

    Rick,

    I am so sorry that the doctors missed this. On my fathers last scans 1 radiologist said the cancer was back and the other said no it wasnt. Same hospital. I have a lot of respect for doctors but with my dad it was their negligence that ultimately did him in at 62 leaving a wife of 38 years and three of us lonely daughters. We were scheduled for a different oncologist the day he unexpectantly passed from a blood clot because they were not watching him, although we saw the doctors weekly for a month complaining of the same symptoms.

    I urge you to get 2nd and 3rd opinions because my father would still be alive today, as his surgeon told us. I will always remeber a show that doctor OZ did that said you must be your own advocate when it comes to your health.

    Scraggles,

    My deepest sympathy to you and your family. It has been just over 2 months since my father passed at the young age of 62. The best advice someone gave me a few days after his passing was to just be kind to yourself. Grieve as long as you want or need. I am yet to get through a day without crying out for my daddy.

    Lots of love and prayers coming your way.

    Yes, 1 month before my father passed one radiologist said the cancer had returned a week later the other said there was no cancer.??? two different radiologist but same hospital. Even his oncologist and surgeon had conflicting views. My advice is keep an eye on everything and everyone.

    btw- My fathers passing was a missed blood clot not cancer.

    best of luck

    HI,

    Dad had his resection 10/07 clear margins. No radiation or chemo after because dr’s said it was not neccesary. Almost 2 years later reoccurence in bile duct area 9/09. 12 rounds of chemo and radiation the tumor is gone. Now they are saying there are more in his liver…supposedly grew in 2 months??Conflicting readings as these two spots were called scar tissue or lesions last year??? Not sure who is on first right now. Dad has an appt with a radiologist tomorrow which i will attend. My thoughts were he should have had it back then after surgery to make sure.

    Margeret,

    Dad had same resection in October of 2007. August of 2009 he had a reoccurence and the oncolgist warned him the fight would be intense. He started in August on Chemo for 6 weeks, then 35 days of radiation, and now 6 more weeks of chemo. He is scheduled for his PET scan a week from today. We are hopeful that this treatment has nailed it. Dad has the shakes a lot too. We got him a snuggie and also a knit hat. Keep the head warm that will help him stay warmer. Congrats on your new grandchild. I was about 6 month along with twins when dad was diagnosed the first time. They were his first grandchildren. I pray for you and your family and hope everyday that they find a cure not only for this cancer but all.

    god bless
