Gallbladder cancer spread to the liver

Gallbladder cancer spread to the liver

Posted by Nic on Jun 18, 2020 12:43 am

Hi guys, my mum was recently diagnosed with gallbladder cancer. There is tumours in the liver and could be something in the pancreas. She lives in Ireland and I am flying home this weekend. She is still waiting for a liver biopsy. Tomorrow she is having a stent put in. She was told surgery is not an option. Anyone have an information/experience with any of the above? I am expecting the worst.
Thanks,
Nichola

Hello,

i’m sorry to hear about your mothers diagnosis. I too went through a similar situation with my late 48 year old mother who was diagnosed with stage 4 gallbladder cancer back in June 2018. This started from abdominal pain from gallstones and doctors were quite late to detect that it is cancer, went through cycles of chemo which helped to keep it stable however my mum emotionally and physically could not continue with it after about 4/5 months so we paused and tried alternative hypothermia treatments in Germany. However this did not help, and she passed away in October 2019, however every person is different and my mother also had a cousin brother who was diagnosed with the exact condition a few months before her and he outlived my mother by around 6 months, whilst on chemo he had an infection and caught covid 19 whilst on hospital which led to his demise however he did cope very well with the cancer treatment and had gone into remission at a point. If you would like any more further detail please do let me know, i’ll be happy to dig deeper might take a revision of my mother’s medical notes.
