What is the prognosis of intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma when a liver resection is performed and stage 2?

In brief: Good

There are other factors involved in prognosis that depend on what the tumor looks like under the microscope.
If the margin of resection was negative and the lymph nodes are negative, the prognosis is excellent at 5 years.

In brief: Need additional info

In general extrahepatic cholangiocacinoma do better than intrhepatic, and with neoadjuvant therapy ( chmo-radiatio ) followed by liver transplantation 80% survival rate other wise over all results are not good, speak to the oncologist who knows more about the case.
