Marie, it would be helpful if your friend could find an oncologist that has treated gall bladder cancer. My FIL died with bile duct cancer. Bile duct, gall bladder, and Pancrease cancer are usually treated with the same chemo drugs. Did your friend have surgery and if so what surgery did they do? My FIL had a whipple. They removed his gall bladder, bile duct, head of his pancreas and deudoum. The whipple is usually followed with chemo and radiation. Martha, that post here lost her mama to gall bladder cancer. If Martha doesn't respond to you e-mail me and I will forward you her e-maill address. Hugs Lillie
