    Fatigue (tiredness)

    Side Effects

    Hello I'm hoping someone can give some advise. My Mom has bile duct cancer. She is normally an energizer bunny. But lately she is experiencing fatigue, which is affecting her mental state. She has no appetite and is not eating much. She's lost a lot of weight. Is there any advise to help with the fatigue and the not eating?

    Problem with doctor

    Oh No

    Hello, My Mom was diagnosed with having a mass in the bile duct over a year ago. We've done all kinds of tests...2 biopsies (working on the 3rd), CT and PET scans and tumor markers. All test are showing as inconclusive. We've ruled out doing the Whipple surgery. So until the doctors can get a conclusive test, we're pretty much just managing the symptoms. We cannot proceed to any type of radiation treatment. Has anyone else experienced this? Where do we go from here?
