    Hello

    I see that there are 2 people scheduled for meetings or surgery with Doctor Canady next week. Please post updates for our readers if possible.

    Thanks

    PS: Both my wife and I were suspicious of him to say the least. I am trying to give advice according to facts and not feelings to one of my family members that is ill.

    Dear Maryanne,
    Thank you for sharing your info. I read your family blogs. I am interested to know what is IPT? How was Joe offered RFA- seems as if my father was not a cadidate due to size of his tumor. What size was Joe’s tumor when they did that?
    God has truly blessed you,
    Many more blessings for you,
    Sincerely,
    Lana

    Hello

    What type of chemo was used? We tried Adriamycin and Mitomycin-c. This did not work for us at all.

    Thanks

    My father has also gotten hiccups in hospital after being treated with chemoembilization. I am a nurse practitioner, and I believe it is definitely linked to the chemo. A part of me also wonders, as we have seen people with no hx of cancer that come into the ER with irretractible hiccups. This is a syndrome that sometimes may be linked to pancreatic disorders.

    Thank you all so very much for having this website! Unfortunately, dad was unable to get therasphere. They did a trial run with some dye. He would have gotten too much radiation in his lungs. He had his second chemoembolization this weekend. 1st treatment was brutal!!! He had a lot of pain after procedure. The 2nd time was much better, other than vomiting bile. We are hoping to shrink tumor to give him some more options(preferably resection). Can anyone tell me why people with cholangiocarcinoma are not candidates for liver transplant? Seems to me that not too many people have even been given this chance. Dad is #15 case with his praticular type of cancer being treated at Mayo Clinic. He has intrahepatic cholangio. Very difficult to compare apples to apples with this rare type of cancer.
    God Bless all of you,
    Please know that our prayers are with you and your families always.

    How interesting!! My father was just at his first visit at Mayo- met with several specialists. I asked about Tarceva and the oncologist said that there is no research behind this medication and that the side effects are basically horrible. Please let me know more!!
