    My husband has recently been diagnosed with Terminal Ampullary cancer, it has spread to the liver and cannot be operated on.  I just wanted to know if anyone feels the same as I do in this situation that it is all so surreal and strange and very difficult to get our heads around, it feels like it is happening to someone else.  Is that normal?

    Would love to talk to anyone who has experience of Ampullary/Liver cancer from a carers point of view.
