Is there any chemo or radation for bile duct cancer. After many inconclusive tests, drs have not determined if bile duct is obstructed because of scar tissue or recurrent of cancer. CAT scan inconclusive and now PET scan is not a definite as nothing highlighted on the bile duct only the pancreas, which could be inflammation from operation 8 months ago. Tomorrow radiology planning PTAC or something like that to put a stent in the bile duct and hopefully will get a brushing when they put a stent in. CA19 was not elevated so not sure what is going on. Any suggestions or thoughts
