Pancreatic Cancer Action

Latest Update...what now????

Hello everyone....just updating...I know last that I told u was that we were going to talk with the surgeon on tues Dec 13....well, they cancelled that and just informed us today that although it is true the tumor has shrunk significantly, it is in fact still wrapped around the artery!!!! Now they want him to start 6 weeks of radiation with the chemo..then another scan to see progress...Just when we thought we were getting close to having surgery and things were looking up, it feels like we are right back where we started...I dont know if this means he will not be able to have surgery ever??? Or what radiation will do to him???? we feel like he was just diagnosed all over again...all of this started first week of august....what happens now???? Scared to death all over again!!!

Thinking of all who are suffering this Cancer


Sorry to hear your news. I think my comment is the same as the others, enjoy every day you have and take it one day at a time. Everyone seems to be different. My dad was referred for tests on 5th August but didn't even get a diagnosis until 17th October by which time it was too late for any treatment at all, he didn't even get to start chemo before he died. At least you are getting some extra time if the cancer has shrunk significantly. Make the most of it.
