Carcinoma gallbladder
Previously my father was diagnosed with gall stones and after we plan the surgery then when the checkups get done we came to know that the condition is carcinoma gallbladder. The tumours is in the wall of gall bladder and previously measured as 5.9×6.7cm but after 3 cycles of chemotherapy the size has reduced to 2.7×2.2cm. And it has spread to only pancreas where it's size was    3.8×3.2 cms and after 3 cycles it is 1.2×1.5cms. After this we go for the next 3 cycles of chemotherapy and now the size of tumor is 3.5×2.3cms. And another one is of size 1.1×1.5cms. Now we want second opinion what to do next as the doctor has suggested for the surgery.

As with chemotherapy we can expect this much response only(50% reduction in size from baseline). So proceed with surgery. After surgery depending upon Histopathology report additional chemotherapy or radiotherapy will be required. Chemotherapy will not cure GB cancer. Surgery will play very important role
