    accepting the diagnosis

    Oh No

    the shock was awful, the last thing I expected to hear, and I had been telling my doctors about certain symptoms I was showing that should have been picked up on but were mistaken for something else

    The tumour was pressing against my bile duct causing acute jaundice a drain was inserted into bile duct and then a stent this was successful

    Procedure or Surgery

    It was painful especially when the doctor also tried to extract a biopsy of the tumour I couldn't tolerate the pain of that
