Extremely worried…

Hi all

I’m extremely anxious as my mum had an MRCP back in November on her gallbladder/liver. We finally got the results back in late January after chasing the hospital. So the results are now back and they have said there was a narrowing in the bile duct of the liver. I’m just extremely scared as I have lost my dad to oesophageal cancer only in September 2021. The consultant has asked for bloods to be repeated and another CT scan on my mum’s upper body. We are seeing the consultant next Friday for the results. Having googled the bile duct cancer it’s incredibly aggressive. I’m just so mad at the hospital as they’ve left it for 6 months as the GP referral went back to August last year. 

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    It's sounds like a very difficult time for you all at the moment. I'm not a member of this group but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again.

    You might also like to join the family and friends forum as you'll then connect directly with others who are supporting someone with cancer. If you'd like to do this, just click on the link I've created and once you've joined you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could put something about your mum's diagnosis and tests so far into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
