My sister has just been diagnosed with bile duct cancer. She will meet with a surgeon this Thursday. They say it is operable. The information on the expectancy from this surgery shows about 5 years for 25%. What kind of life can she expect to have after surgery? What happens after surgery? How will she feel? Will she be sick all the time, or can she expect a good quality of life?
