    Duke hospital North Carolina. He has cc inside the liver main bile duct.. Originally the surgeon said two operation . First embolization . But after having a meeting with a board of Drs. The surgeon it’s opting for just one . No embolization. We are so greatful and of course I’m nervous about it . Tomorrow we will see the surgeon for details . Duke cancer centers it’s a great place . Just for your info my husband never threw up . Not once and also no burns in his body from the radiation given . And still has the same amount of hair . We have a legion of people praying for us . God is Goodall the time. We know we have a long road ahead of us . Wish all people suffering from this disease can have good results from their treatment. I will keep you posted. T Blessings to y’all .
    Thanks

    Don’t know if this can help but it didn’t help my husband . Actually it grew bigger . He just finished a treatment of radiation and chemo . 5 days a week for 6 weeks . We are waiting 4 weeks before the new scan to see if it works. He’s been treated at Duke in NC. It a very agresive radiation straight to the tumor . I can get the name if u want. Good luck .

    His tumor is close to the portal vein and veba cava . That’s why they said can’t operate until tumor shrinks.

    He had chemo first no radiation . Reason they didn’t want scaring because surgery. He’s having now chemo and radiation for 6 weeks. Chemo on a pump 24 h. And radiation 5 days a week. He’s been treated at Duke cancer center in Nc. Think it’s one of the best . He’s 55 y/o . Was diagnosed this past August . Blood screens are all ok. So far. Not sure what chemo he’s getting now. Will have to read the papers.
