I'v read your postings. My husband was treating with on oncologist (sp) for
over 4 months, we had MRI's CAT scans, fancy blood test,(he was a
diabetic)the pain under his rib cage on the right side was worse
everyday-they removed his gallbladder then 2 days later his appendix(sp)then
he began forming blood clots in his veins in his legs and was on
injections(blood thinners)in the stomache every AM and PM, more MIRI's The
Dr. said they showed cysts on the liver nothing to worry about-finally on
Nov.30,2000 I took him to the ER, the pain was so bad, I did not call the Dr.
The hospital GI Dr.said he had metastic cancer somewhere, I told him no, the
other Dr. said they were cyst, nothing to worry about. My husband underwent
test for 16 days, had a stroke and was told on the 15th day he had Bile Duct
Cancer, go home and die-how could this have happened? How could the
oncologist(sp) miss this and call it cyst? We were treating with a primary
Dr. also, it's not like we just walked in off the street-I faxed these Drs.
daily, telling them he was worse EVERYDAY-My husband was buried Christmas
Eve, he would have been 66 May1, he was in great health until this pain
started-How could this happen?
