    Newly diagnosed--what to expect?

    Getting appointment with specialist at Mass General in MA. Is this the best hospital to go to for bile duct cancer? Scared. Had breast cancer/mastectomy in 2002. In remission since then. That did not scare me half as much. Please and thank you for any input.

      In addition to being at a good hospital, make sure you have a physician (and a surgeon if you need one) you trust and who communicated clearly and completely. That makes a lot of difference.

      And all the best to you - you know you have a lot of people here rooting for your to beat this turd of a disease!
