Hello my name is June. My friend Dave just had a pet scan on Thurs. 5/31/2012. The test came back there is a mass on the head of his pancreas they also found liver hypoensities, ascities, and lymph node adenopathy. The thing is his wife had cancer 6 years ago, his 20 year old son had a mass on the ribs and he finished treat about a year and a half ago, his brother just finished his treatment 3 months ago, his sister in law is still in treatment. This family has had so much horror and Dave was the back bone for all of this. His wife was put on nerve med. she doesn't eat now I'm so afraid she will get sick again. I am trying to take some of the burden off of her, I go with them for his visites so she isn't driving. But now that I read about pancreas cancer I am getting so scaried. It would really suck if they can't help him is the funniest and I just love this family so so much they are such caring and giving person. I don't sleep at night i am on this computer all day and night i guess just trying to find an answer. I would really like to hear from someone that made it threw this horrable cancer. I know I read about whipple or whibble surgery maybe they will do this as soon as possible cause he has to be there Monday first thing. Well that is my story so far, I would like to hear good stories or where would the best place for him to go? He is now going to a doctor at St. Lukes in Allentown.

No, but we got a second opinion after we started treatment
