Hello everyone. Thank you for reading my posting. My mother's gallbladder tumor was discovered in December of last year during it's removal. She had gall stones all her life. It was stage II, I don't recall the letter abbreviation. Part of the liver and gallbladder were removed and she completed course of radiation and chemo(Xeloda). CT with contrast 3 months ago was clean. Same CT, 3 months later (Oct.,16th) showed 4 affected lymph nodes in various peritoneal locations. Can anybody suggest an oncologist for us to go to for a second opinion? Any words of advice? We live in Seattle area. Thank you very much. Vadim.
