My husband was diagnosed five weeks ago with gall bladder cancer and leisons in his lover which are maglignant. He has had tubes inserted in his bile ducts and a stent also. He also had a blood clot to his lung just before the diagnosis. Is there a connection between the clot which originated in his leg and the cancer? He has had two bouts of chemo. After the second one, which was stronger than the first chemo, he developed sepsis. He was in the hospital for nine days. His right leg has filled with fluids, the left one too, but not as much. He now has difficulty walking around and uses a walker. What are the connections between all of these things going on if any. also, on top of all this, which really really gets me mad is that he still smokes. Not as much as he used to, but he is also on ozygen. I don't know how to get him to stop smoking.
