    Hi
    This time last year my wonderful husband Norman had pain under his right shoulder blade. He was used to pain as he had nerve damage in his left side following Hiatus Hernia surgery at 32. He eventually agreed to go to the doctors as it worsened. As with so many of your stories, his was not a happy ending. He was admitted to hospital and told it wasnt cancer, gallstones probably, only to then get the diagnosis of cholangiocarcenoma. Devastated doesn’t cover it. Our 4 girls and myself spent every available moment with him at hospital where he battled Sepsis and a failed kidney, enduring procedures because he didn’t know how not to fight. My warrior. 6 weeks after diagnosis he asked to come home. Everything was booked and an ambulance ordered for 5pm that Monday – it arrived at 5am the following morning,as we sat watching him hanging on determined to get home. He did. and at 2.45 pm on Tuesday 18th September 2018 a week before our 42nd wedding anniversary, he passed away.
    Nothing prepares us for the devastation that follows the loss of the person who was my Raison d’etre. I can only say my heart goes out to all in a similar position

    Hello to you all who are affected by this vile disease. My name is Christine. My darling husband is 61 and has been diagnosed with inoperable bile duct cancer, secondary in 2 sections of his liver and swollen lymph nodes. He starts a round of chemo to try and extend his predicted 6 months. I am terrified that the chemo will do more harm than good.

    There is some information on our website regarding chemotherapy https://ammf.org.uk/treatment-options-2/chemotherapy/

    We hope that other Forum users will come in and share their experiences of chemotherapy with you and we wish your husband well for his ongoing treatment.
