I'm a very upset person this weekend wondering. My big question is what would I feel like if I had the disease? I'm to have the ct monday and I don't seem to really understand how I should feel or look if I have it?

Thank you so much for responding. I just found this site and it's all so new to me. I started in Jan. with severe back and rib pain but it went away after 3 weeks. About three weeks ago it went into my waist line, my ribs, back, and horrible gas pains under my breast and ribs, front and back. In the mean time I've lost a little weight, been very tired and weak, etc. I'm 69 and very active and supposed to leave on a 3 week cruise Thursday morning and now this. I just keep wondering what I should be feeling like with the pancreatic cancer. I still live my life as normal but uncomfortable. I went to get help before the cruise and this is what he said he felt was important to do. NOW.

Yes, he said he wanted to be sure. I had blood work yesterday but no results until Monday. I ache all over but really no pain. I had a couple of hours with a hot spot on my left side towards the middle but other then that just rolling gas under my ribs and the ache in the back that moves around but has been at my right waist on side for about a week now and in the middle of my back at arm level. You have alarmed me but I appreciate any information. I am dreading the drinking of the "stuff". I have heard it is awful! However, if there is a problem, the sooner the better. I have no idea how they would treat it either or where to go.

Thank you for all the positive thoughts and prayers. I wanted you to know that they worked. My results were good and now to figure out the problem. I pray for all of you and your families. Life is so short and wonderful and when this happens it really brings you to your knees.
Thank you, again.
