On 25 may 2014 my mother had symptoms of jaundice after ultrasound the doctor
suggested ERCP in which a stent was placed in CBD, because there was blockage
or you can say contraction of CBD. After ERCP doctor show his opinion that
she had a cancer and he suggested CT scan. In CT scan every thing was clear.
then open surgery was planned to remove the gall bladder because there was
stones in the gall bladder. on 12 june 2014 open surgery was done to remove
gall bladder, successfully.
In her histo pathology report there was a tumour in the gall bladder in which
serosa involvement was clear. After that we had suggested to go through from
PET CT scan. In that scan conclusive findings are
'Finding favoring FGD avid residual disease in CBD and Porta Hepatic Nodes.
Hypermetabolic ill defined focus in liver hepatic metastasis.'
The doctors said that it is a stage 4 cancer and cant be surgically removed.
where radio therapist said there is no proven role of radiation in this case.
Chemo therapist told us not to disturb at that moment. Because thanks God
that my mother is fine and there is no problem apparently. The chemo
therapist said when she had any pain then chemo therapy can be given.
Now the last hope that remains is palliative treatment that improves the
quality of her life.
I shall be very thankful to all of you who help me in suggesting some tips
that will improve her life quality.
Looking to hear from you people. Than I will place more questions.
