Hi. My name is Carol. I had Gallbladder Cancer (stage 2) in 2013. Had surgery, then chemo (Gemcitabine) ,radiation , then chemo again. Have been clear for 6 years. VERY scary stuff.

Hi, I'm John K G.

I had my gallbladder removed, No chemo no radiation. Simple, don’t need it anyway. Like spending a fortune to treat an appendix.

Hi, I'm John K G.

Having mine removed saved thousands of dollars and the bad effects of chemo and radiation. Personally I think you were sold a bill of goods seeing it’s not a critical organ.

I'm Andrea Petretti, and I'm a survivor of Stage 4 Gallbladder Cancer

They removed my gallbladder along with the tumor. Said they got it all. Pet scan showed spread and they are telling me it’s stage 4. Started chemo, but no explanation of anything. Everything I read on the internet is really bad. I will fight this with everything I have. I’d love to hear survivor stories.

Hi, I'm Sharon K

In January 2019 I went to have my gallbladder removed and they found cancer. Stage 4. The gall bladder was removed and a small portion of my liver was removed. I received twelve rounds of chemo.
The drugs used were 5fu and oxaliplatin. My scans in July and October were clear. Gallbladder cancer is serious business. Praying for you. My next scans will be January and I will update but so far so good. Keep your chin up.

Thank you so much Sharon K. I pray your scan is clear. I have 2 more months of chemo and will have scans done. Seeing my heart doctor regularly now due to swelling in my ankles and feet and shortness of breath.
