    Hi Amy,

    It sounds like we are in the same boat. I haven't met anyone yet with this kind of cancer so it is nice to chat with someone going through the same experience. It was such a shock to me that I had cancer. I am on the same chemo treatment as you and it is also working for me. I just finished my third round of treatment and have five more to go. I'm glad you are doing well. Good luck with the rest of your treatments. Stay positive.

      Thanks Denise!! I have been responding REALLY well to treatment! My tumor marker was about 300 before any chemo treatments and as of my recent treatment last Friday it was 14!!! I know what you mean - it was a SHOCK to find out that I have cancer! One of the craziest things is that the average age for someone to get gallbladder cancer is 72. I am 47!! I have treatment on Friday and that will be my tenth treatment. I still have my hair and the nausea is almost non-existent. Good luck to you as well! Thank you for writing!
