Wow! It is the first day we have officially been told my dad has bile duct cancer. The doctor has been preparing us for it, by letting us know he suspected it. What a shock! I have GOT to find something out about this cancer. I cannot stand here by his bed & watch him go away, a little each day. The bag he has inserted to relieve some liver exxcess build up has already proven to be a help to his yellow skin & itching. Is there a doctor out there who has operated & succeed in removing the tumor from this 'no mans land' in the liver area? What is Glivee? What is c-kit? thanks for any advice, help or info, anyone will send me. CAT :)
