Hi,

A week ago my mom was diagnosed with gallbladder cancer stage 4. I am looking for survivors. Anyone who knows a survivor. I know the statistics, the doctor has already given us a time frame, and the oncologist has told us to go for "quality of life".

If there are any survivors or if you are having successful treatments I would like to hear from you. What have/are you doing right? Where did/are you getting treatment?

Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Mohammad,

Just saw your posting here and even though we have talked via email, please cut and paste your father's story to the discussion thread Gallbladder Cancer - 2013 (Any Stage).  It is the most current thread and others would like to hear your story. 

Take Care

Lily

Hi,

 

I am from Italy and my mum was been diagnosed with a gallbladder cancer stage 4 with a carcinoma in the peritoneum. Here in Italy I wrote to the best Doctors, but all of them told me that it is impossible to save my mum, impossible to do surgery. I don't know if wherever in the world there is at least one possibility of saving her, that's why I am asking for your help. My mother did palliative chemio until now, with Gemzar, but now her liver is suffering and doctors don't think she will be able to continue with chemio.

I read here that it was possible to survive for you and I hope my mum will survive too.

Please, give me Doctors contact, at least I will try to contact them and ask for help.

 

Thank you everybody

Hello. Im not a Dr, and dont understand probably what the diagnose is.

However, what i found out. Get the right chemo who can shrink the tumors, also in addition get immunotherapy. With this the goal is that the tumor is small enough to operate or to do a transplantation.
