Essiac and Dilated Pancreatic Duct

My mother received test results advising that she has a dilated pancreatic duct.  We have not received an official diagnosis yet, but we suspect pancreatic cancer.  We will meet with the doctor next week for consultation.  Several days ago, I took my mother to a well-known chinese herbalist/licensed medical doctor for treatment.  She was given an unusual mix of chinese herbs and put on a strict, organic, low fat bland diet.  No sugars, seasonings, red meat and limited water/fruit intake.  I have also researched Essiac and am interested in giving my mother this herbal therapy.  Does Essiac interfere with other herbal therapies?  Has anyone had the experience of using 2 separate herbal therapies?  I am trying to stay positive and prayerful, but I understand the risks.  I also know someone that was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 18 years ago and is still alive, which gives me hope.

Hi;

Does your mom have any symptoms, I hope you know this is in

and of itself does not mean PC, what tests did your mom have?

Has she had an EUS, its like a sonogram thru the stomach so they

can get a better picture of the pancreas which is deep in our organs

and sometimes hard to see.

I hope you continue to respond, I also wrote you a private message!

                                                  Sincerely,

                                                  Denise

Hi,

My mother had 2 biopsies and a CT Scan.  One biopsy on the thyroid region, indicated that the nodules were benign.  The other biopsy on her lungs indicated that she was free of an issues in the lung area.  A CT scan showed a dilated pancreatic duct.  We will be consulting with an Oncologist this week.  I don't know if it is PC, but it's one of the things that I suspected.  By reading this great message board, I have read courageous and emotional accounts of people battling the illness and have learned so much.  I admit, that reading other websites, out of fear, I have attempted to pre-diagnose my mother.  It is scary not knowing what is going to happen or what the Oncologists will tell you.  My mother had an injury (she fell in the bathroom, on her back, after getting out of the shower).  She has been experiencing hard pain in her back and abdominal region, since this time.  She states that she experiences some discomfort when eating on some days, but has experienced this since the accident.  Several months ago, her primary doctor indicated that he suspected that she was diabetic.  He put her on a diabetic diet, but ultimately verified that she was not diabetic.  She was only sent for biopsies several weeks ago for thyroid nodules, when it was discovered that she had a dilated pancreatic duct.  When we were told about the test results, I immediately put her on an organic diet, distilled water, supplements (the supplements taken by Billy Best) and liposomil Vitamin C 8000 mg per day.  I have ordered the Biobran MGN3 and will be ordering Beta Glucan. I also have been reading Bill Henderson's book, which has given me great information.  I really am grateful for your response and the response of the other members.  God Bless.

Sincerely,

Mel

I also forgot to mention that I have taken my mother to a Chinese Herbalist.  The herbalist is addressing gastrointestinal, weight and skin issues with my mother.
