Had galbladder removed 1/24/02(laparoscopic cholecystectomy)because of
gallstone attack a few weeks earlier. Galbladder had many stones, but also
had adenocarcinoma tumor which was thru lining of GB.(determined by biopsy).
Also removed lym-nodes indicated possible contamination. Following cat-scan
showed no indication of spreading. First(1/28/02)and second(2/04/02)opinion
says to have second surgery to remove some of liver where GB was, any nearby
lym-nodes, and complete bile duct.(scheduled 3/06/02). Possible follow up
with chemo and radiation. I have been a healthy 54 year old with no
symptoms. Have read and researched many sites on web, but this personal
discussion board seems to be the most helpful. Would really apppreicate any
advice, like cases, or any discussions.
