Overview

Understanding Your Diagnosis

Abdominal Ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasound is a procedure that uses sound wave technology to assess the organs, structures, and blood flow inside the abdomen.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography

Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) is a procedure in which x-ray and an endoscope - a long, flexible, lighted tube - are used to assess and treat problems in the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, and pancreas.

Gallbladder Scan

A gallbladder scan - also known as a liver-billiary scan - uses nuclear radiology to assess the function and structure of the gallbladder and surrounding organs.

Deciding on Treatment

Radiation Therapy for Gallbladder Cancer

Radiation uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells or keep them from multiplying. It can be used after surgery, to kill any cancer that is too small to see, or on inoperable cancers to prevent their spread.

Managing Side Effects

Fatigue: Management

Fatigue can come and go or stay constant for a while. Fatigue from chemotherapy tends to occur a few days after the treatment, peaks, and then gets better before the next treatment. Fatigue from radiation may not happen right away.
