Hi- its been a year since losing my dad to gall bladder cancer.. He went in just for a routine GB removal and the lab report came back as cancer. Was told 6-12 months to live and that treatment would not help. My family took him to Mayo for tests and had a bile duct stent placed and was told at that time that it was stage 4 and that the liver and lymph glands were involved. To make this short--we lost him in 6 weeks!!!!!! His last week was spent in hospice and already on the other side. We (mom, 2 brothers and 2 sisters) didn't have too long to say goodbye--our world was tossed upside down so fast. Also, newcomers to cancer.
