I was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma on October 8th, 2010. I had surgery to remove the tumor about 2 weeks later on the 26th of October. The surgery said he was able to get the entire tumor out. I am 21 years old, so I have my age working in my favor. I saw an oncologist a few weeks later and he said that whether or not I do chemo is up to me! I spoke back with the GI doctor who diagnosed me, he suggested that chemo is probably something that I should do. He said that if I wanted a second opinion that I should make a trip to MD Anderson, because they are experts there! I live in GA so that is a kind of far trip. Ive also read that chemo isnt that affective against Cholangiocarcinoma. So I dont know what I should do.... Does anyone know anyone who has been in a similar situation and what they did or any suggestions on what I should do next??
