My husband, 37, was diagnosed with bile duct (Klatskins tumour)cancer in June. The cancer had spread to his abdominal wall. He has been receiving chemotherapy for tha past 5 months (gemzar, 5FU and leutovicin (Sp?)).

On Wednesday we got the results of the latest CT scan and they can not find a tumour! Although this may not mean that he is cancer free...it is still a miracle in itself. He is scheduled to finish chemo in 2 weeks time.

I hope this information may be of some benefit to others. God Bless.
