I was diagnosed with an inoperable adenocarcinoma in the head of the pancreas in Jan 2007. Yes, 6 years in a few months. Resection was not possible as the tumor surrounds the superior mesenteric artery. Treatment was 2 months Gemcitabine, followed by 30 days of very high levels of radiation concurrent with continuous infusion of 5fu, followed by 6 cycles of Gemcitabine. I continue to have regular maintenance chemo - a few months on a few months off. My quality of life is excellent and almost symptom free. My regular CT scans shows no change since diagnosis. This is the short of it all but I am willing to answer any queries.
