Hi All -- I have a friend who was diagnosed early last year with stage IV bile duct cancer and is currently undergoing chemo. Is there a relatively standard progression to this disease? I'm trying to be as educated as I can be about this and want to know what to expect. She's been dealing with this for 10 months. To date, the tumor had been in check but recently this has changed and there has been some activity. There's also been increased irritation to other organs in that area. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
