Bile duct blues part 7

Met with very nice oncologist today and discussed treatment options. Well actually, chemotherapy is the only option available.

This will start in 3-4 weeks and repeat fortnightly for 6 months. My condition will be continually monitored. Experience with the chemotherapy will provide guidance for future treatment.

For what it's worth I am relatively young and strong and should tolerate chemotherapy well.

Still recovering from surgery - wound is starting to heal and am able to get out of bed and take a shower. Still not really back on my tucker but am assured this is normal and just a matter of time.

Will update again tomorrow. Thanks again to all the well-wishers.
