Hi – I’m in Ottawa. My husband was diagnosed on Halloween 2017 and he was inoperable here in Ottawa. We also requested a second opinion with Dr McGillivray, we had the appointment in late December/17 Unfortunately his team also conclude that he was inoperable. Have you checked with McGillivray’s office to make sure he received the referral and paper work. I really would follow up if you haven’t already
Mine only started chemo on January 8/18. They didn’t want to start chemo if he was going to see McGillivray and possibly have surgery, as he would be too weak for the surgery.
Feel free to get in touch anytime. We 🇨🇦 Have to stick together.
I’m so sorry about your sister-in-law. The recurring theme in discussions about this cancer, is that things move very quickly. On Halloween, it will be exactly 1 year since my husband’s diagnosis. It will also be 3 months since he died. Hopefully she will be a bit strong enough to partying a trial. The main goal should be giving comfort to her and her family.
I hope your treatments for your cancer cancer is a success.
❤️ From Canada
Dear Laura – I just wanted to reach out and say hello back. I’m so sorry you’ve had this diagnosis- and glad to hear you’ve had some improvement. I hope you have a good support network – don’t hesitate to reach out here if you need to chat. Stay strong❤️
I’m not sure whether this is still relevant, but Dt Ian McGilvray at Toronto General is supposed to be a highly reputable surgeon for bile duct cancer. Toronto has world class facilities. I’m in Ottawa, my husband had this cancer.
My sweet, loving, funny husband died 3 weeks ago, 9 months to the day after diagnosis. Is there someone here I could talk to? I feel like I can’t breathe sometimes. Not sure I’m posting in correct section
