My dad was diagnosed with GBC in 12/06 after a standard gb removal. 1 lymph was removed at that time that was positive. All of his blood work and PET scans did NOT show any metastic disease (Jan. 2007). We knew it was in the portion of the bile duct that was removed so they did do a liver resection in 3/07, removed 1 lobe, all of bile duct, 5 local lymphs and duodenum. All local lymphs were clear as where all surgical margins. No chemo or radiation to date. My guestion is - Is it common to not have any evidence of disease on the PET and CA 19-9?
