After several misses my husband was diagnosed in May 2001. He has had
numerouse ERCPs. The last one was a metal mesh stent. But this one has not
done much good. In fact his bilirun went back up quickly. Now they are
scheduling another one for this week. To put a plastic one inside the metal.
His tumor has spread from inside the duct to some liver involvement and it is
also wrapped around the portal vein. So there is no way it can be touched.
He has just finished his first round of 5Fu and is having a hard time. Is
this normanl? Also any suggestions on how to deal with three teens? We have
told them that he has cancer but not the impact that it has on the future.
