My mil was dx w/ unresectable intrahepatic bile duct cancer (cholangiacarcinoma) in December 2008 & started chemo (gemcitabine & irinotecan) Jan '09.
in reading about BDC, I've seen some note of a connection b/n BDC and gallbladder disease. My mil did have her gallbladder removed July
'07.

I was wondering, just as an informal survey, how many people dx w/BDC or any bilary cancer previously had a gallstone or gallbladder issue. Nothing I've read has stated an actual cause/effect b/n gallbladder disease & bilary cancer, just some connection.
