    Hello Mary,

    His first treatment of Chemo went alright, He came to my work after and was in good spirits and actually was acting like his old self. I do not know what meds they are using. He goes to see his Dr. next Wednesday and I told him I am going to tag along to ask some questions. We want to get a second opinion, but everyone I have talked to says start the Chemo first to get the cancer from spreading. According to this Dr; Cleveland Clinic read his reports and looked at his scans and said there was no hope and he was not a candidate for surgery. I have this feeling in my gut, that this Oncologist doesn’t know what he is doing. Now mind you this could be a daughter trying to save her dad, or my gut could be right. I live in Canton Ohio and I do not think that the Dr.s here have any idea what to do with this kind of cancer. I have contacted Cancer Treatment Centers of America and they say that they treat this cancer, but in my research I have found that they are not good places to go but I don’t know. My dad fears if he doesn’t listen to this Dr. then he could die now. In all that I have read the outlook is bleak, but I do let him see it. I give him honest and upfront answers on the research I have done. I will not give him false hope, but will not let him wither away either. He lives an hour away. But I call him and make sure that he is moving around. He is so tired all the time. My fear is he will give up. Even though, he said he can’t go yet, he has to make sure everything is in order. He does not want to die so I think that positive is helpful. I will keep you posted.

    Hello, My name is Sherry. My father was diagnosed 1 week following his 70th birthday (Feb 3rd 2018). He went in for a gallbladder issue, came out with the horrific news that he is dying. In my research on this ugly monster I came across this site. I have been doing what I can to get all of the information as he is not getting all of the information from this particular Dr. He started Chemo last thurs. After his treatments are completed I will take him for a second opinion as to the depth of this cancer and its ability to be removed. Thank you for allowing me to join this group though I wish there was not a need for it.
