That diagnosis had to be really frightening out of the blue! I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with all this uncertainty. I’ve been there too and can empathize with you. I didn’t have Cholangiocarcinoma but a blood cancer where the odds weren’t in my favor. I’m in remission for almost 3 years and things are looking great.
We don’t do ourselves any favors by looking at the internet for the prognosis and all the horror stories just serve to scare the bejeebers out of us.

You’re fortunate in that this was caught early and you’re already in treatment. There are positive stories of this cancer being caught and in remission! My neighbor across the street just went through the same battle 2 years ago. He’s out shoveling his driveway right now! He’s in full remission and all his tests keep coming back clean.
It’s not easy, but please try your best to keep a positive eye on the future! There is always hope!

How are you doing with your treatments so far?

thank you, that is what I am hoping for and I am going to university for a second opinion next week and discuss new treatments for this rare cancer. so far I have tolerated the Chemo OK and last CT showed it had not spread . Mayo is my third choice just because of distance.
