About 2 weeks back, my mom has been diagnosed with stage 4 klatskins tumor - cancer of the bile duct that has spread to her liver and the lungs.
The diagnosis was done in India and the doctors did an ERCP to place metal stents that controlled the jaundice and hyper acidity that she was suffering from.
Doctors here are telling me that her disease is beyond the scope of treatment and chemotherapy would just make her life difficult.
I saw these posts on CSN and it gave me some hope. I work in the US and was hoping to know if there were any specialized doctors/treatments or anything at all I could do to save her. I understand how helpless this feels and how painful it is when it happens to a loved one.
I would greatly appreciate any help on this. My email is email@example.com and my contact number is 571-420-3681/571-488-4502
