Hi. I pray the 12 sessions shrunk the cancer lots. I believe the nano is covered under insurance. I did not have the nano done. But, Dr. Martin removed my oversized spleen and gallbladder. He couldn't touch my pc at the time. I think he's very good. I do have his nurses number. Tracy 1-502-238-1413. I don't want to bum you out. But, I know 2 people who did have the nano and both of their cancers came back in other places. But, no one is the same....God has a plan for just you. I believe this. Karen.

How long did it take for the cancer to return in the other Nanoknife patients?  My husband had the Nanoknife procedure in December 2011.

Hi. One woman was cancer free for 9 months. She had the nano 12-10 and cancer came back 9-11 in her liver. She continues her fight and is doing pretty well. The man I knew had the nano the summer of 2011 and physically never recovered from it...he needed the feeding tube for awhile and I'm not sure when the cancer took over. He died in the spring of 2012. Remember were all soooo different. I' always try to find survivers on pancan that had a diagnoses close to the same as me. I never can find anyone. It would be a comfort to find someone that's a long time surviver that has not had surgury and beat stage 4 with chemo. But...my only comfort comes from God.  I pray your husband has a long healthy, cancerfree life with you. Karen

Gretchen72404 Hi,

It's been just over one year since my husband's Nanoknife and so far everything is A.O.K. He did do chemo for 6 months after the Nano and is now off.

Ok, now remind me.  Did your husband go to Dr. Martin in Louisville?  My husband had the Nanoknife in December with Dr. Martin.  What stage was your husband in?  Did he have any positive lymph nodes or spread?

Thanks your your answer.  I imagine you will not find anyone who has not had surgery and beat stage 4 with chemo!   That is an absolute miracle from God.  How long has your cancer been gone now?

Dr. Watkins ,no node involvement. localized stage 4 is what we were originally told. Chemo for over 2 years, failed Whipple at the very beginning. Most Drs won't do Nanoknife with spread that's why it's a hard decision.

I'll rephase that.

 My husband had over 2 years of chemo that kept his cancer in remission than we opted for the Nanoknife.

Misunderstanding. I still have stage 4 cancer. It's in my pancreas, lungs and on my diaphram. Karen

Hello Sheila, I know this message is a year old. However we are looking to see Dr. Martin in Louieville and wondered if you ever made the journey. We have had some communication with Dr Martin and he feels my husband is a candidate. I am concerned about the cost and whether OHIP Would help. So any info you might have would be appreciated. I hope this finds you doing OK . This is a monster we are fighting. Thanks Dor

I didn't go through with the nanoknife, I took a break from folfirinox last summer, January there was a slight increase in the mets in the liver so I am back on folfirinox with the hope it will work again. Sorry but I can't help you I had no comunication with Dr. Martin and I have no idea if OHIP would help in any way, I wish I could be more helpfull, but I truly hope that it works out for your husband and I would appreciate any information you can pass on to me.

Good luck to you both I admire what you are doing you will be in my thoughts and prayers which ever path you take to fight this desease. Sheila
