  • Hi

    I'm afraid I'm not going to be much help to you as I'm not a member of this group but noticed that your post hadn't had any replies.

    What sort of help were you looking for? If it's a question to do with bile duct cancer or the ERCP then you could post your question in the ask a nurse section and one of the specialist nurses will respond within 2 working days. Alternatively, you could phone the Macmillan Support Line on 0808 808 0000 to speak to one of the nurses. It's free to call and is available every day between 8am and 8pm.

    I know that waiting for tests and results is horrible and there's no easy answer on how to cope. I busied myself with my hobbies as I found that doing something I enjoyed helped me forget about the cancer. You might like to take a look through this information that Macmillan have produced on coping with fear and anxiety.
