reccomended surgeon for liver cancer

My Dad is only 61, in July of this year he was diagnosed with bile duct cancer which had spread to his liver. after one unsuccessful op we were told that at best he had 3 months to live. we went for a second opinion and were referred to Prof Lodge in Leeds (based at St James Hospital) - my Dad is now at home recovering from his second op. Prof Lodge removed ALL the cancer and the future now looks bright. I wish to reccomend Prof Lodge to anyone else out there having to face this dreadful disease. He is an excellent surgeon - operates on 'the hopeless cases' and is very caring (he rings my dad every day at home). whatever you do GET A SECOND OPINION and never give up the fight.. there are people out there who can help.

best wishes

Jules

Hi I would like to recommend a very good liver surgeon. I have a rare cancer neoendocrine or nets the primary was in my right lung which I had both lobes remove some years ago. However it spread to the liver last year and two large tumours where found one 13 centimetres and one 17 centimetres. Mr Mudan from the Royal Marsden worked with two teams for 12 hours to remove them and basically saved my life. Though the tumours have returned he is still working his magic!

hi, i was diagnosed in 2005 with secondary liver cancer. apparantly it was unheard of in people my age (i was 28 )
my liver is full of tumors and because of this they cant operate. i was given weeks to live but i'm still here!
they do not know where the primary cancer is and i also have pancreatic cancer and have just had treatment for a rather large brain tumour ( my friend calls it my pebble ) which turned me into a diabetic, oh joy!
apparently i have months to live but im hoping thats a load of ****
i dont think anyone can do anything more for me, i do have an excellent consultant though.
i just hope i dont get anything else now. i just need a big holiday!

Hi Jules

Your post is so true, my brother was under Professor Lodge, he kept my brother alive for 17yrs with Bowel cancer which had mets to his lung. He is  a great man.

My sister now has Liver cancer, just like your dads.  She has been told her liver is so badly damaged no treatment is available, im going to show her your post and hope she lets us try for a 2nd opinion.  Very best wishes to you and your dad.
