Last pet scan 4/3/12 with results 4/10/2012 showed no indications of brain cancer or any other cancer in his body. Our heavenly father blessed us with a miracle!!!

Tom's wife and Dave--- (probably wrote Dave in the past as CT not far from NH... New England!)--  As much as you both are dealing with great news and I truly hope it stays that way my question is it is worth changing the patient's diet and exposure to chemicals in water, soaps,.... and adding certain foods just as much as removing others... and exercising (article say recurrences considerably less with colon, breast and prostate cancers) and other harmless changes?  What is there to lose but maybe more to gain by changing lifestyle habits in addition to the conventional treatments.  I had related ampullary cancer and did it all too but don't feel too secure thinking I don't need to do more.  Frankly with pancreatic that was in the nodes I wonder if they should put patients on a low maintenance dose as a study?  Today I am off all treatment including chemo one year... and I only hope the longer we stay well, the better the odds.  I have plugged a number of times Dr. Servan-Schreiber's Anti Cancer diet book and saw him and dr. fuhrman on pbs with some similar suggestions, also heard most of the same dietary ideas from a nutritionist at a big American Cancer Society survivors event.  I had discussions with my radiologist too about diet, something is making periampullary cancers be seen in younger and younger patients, at this point and we all want to grow old (and those technically elderly want to enjoy their social security too).  :-)
