Do you know the stage of your cancer yet? What treatments have you had or will have?
My wife has been diagnosed with gallbladder cancer and has gone through her chemo treatment with Cisplatin to try and shrink the tumor for surgery. The tumor actually grew so we are trying a different chemo plan and looking st clinical trials at Mayo. working with Dr. Borad. Doing chemo in our home town.
I would welcome any similar input if it is out there in our community.
Hi Doug, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. Please meet @pgf, who has also been diagnosed with gallbladder cancer.
Has your wife started the new chemo regimen yet? How is she doing both in terms of side effects and emotionally? It must've been a blow to hear the tumor grew instead of shrinking with the first chemo. How are you!?
Sarasally2 never answered me
It is possible that @sarasally2 is away. However, in the meantime, others have joined this discussion. Do you see the messages from @dougmcd?

She has not started yet, It is strictly to keep the tumor from growing while she is considered for trials. But, you never know..
We are trying very hard to work with all of this as best we can. It is difficult but that is to be expected.
