I was diagnosed with Bile Duct Cancer on August of 2006. went thru Whipple procedure in Sept. no problems with the surgery. went to oncologist for chemo and found that cancer spread to liver. Since then I have taken Xeloda (approx 7 mo). which controlled the tumor growth after that I received Gemzar infuse for approx 9 mo. when that quit working I had y90 embolization with Sir Spheres. the catscan was inconclusive in that it showed a large amount of tumor growth. My oncologist thinks it my be dead cells. Catscan was done alittle over a month after receivng spheres. anyone had similiar experience
