My husband has just had 75% of his liver removed, he was diagnosed with Klakskin Tumor 6 mths ago.The tumor had totally blocked off his bile duct, there was tumor in the Portal vien, which they cut & shut with a graft. They also took 2 lympth glands out. Also joining his bowl to the liver. His Dr has given him every chance, he is 56 & he is doing very well.He has been having Chemo for 3 mth. He had a c19.9 blood test 2 weeks ago & it came back with a reading of 22, is this a good count.When he started chemo his count was 44, so the chemo is having an effect. if there is any one who would like to comment please feel free do do so. I would love some feed back on your experiences.
