Diagnosed with cancer of pancreas with mets to the liver and nodes given 3-6 months celebrating two years.  Feeling good CT scan tomorrow, been on folfirinox from the start with a six month break last summer, hoping for another break if scan shows good news.

Sheann, two years, congratulations, how amazing. I hope to inspire my hubby with your story. He was dx last Oct - had 12 Folfirinox - has been on 4 month break now. He's like normal, nearly, really put on weight, its great. He's nervous, next month is 1 year anniverary of dx and he thinks his time is short. I will tell him your story, it is inspiring.

Sheann, I was on  Fulfirinox chemo day one. Side affects were bad. Nausea, fatigue, fever, lost taste and lost hair..But I used my juicer and drank protein drinks. I did 11 sections. Show shrinkage. Then Gemzar and Vitamin C. This was a trial. Scans show more tumors did not work. Little side affects. Vitamin C gave me energy. Then Chemo Embolizations. After weeks tumors grew again. Little pain in the liver and pancreas area. The Pancreas at the same time they did pin point radiation. Little nausea little pain in both liver and pancreas area. Lung and liver tumors grew and multiply. But the pancreas stayed the same. Today I'm tolerating the Abraxcine and Gemzar. Three weeks on and one off. Little fatigue on the third day. Taste was there alittle and little appetite. But again drinks and I force foods down to keep my weight up.

Stay positve creates good cells. And Giving it to God releases the weight. Remember God put eyes in front of your head. If he wanted you to look back. He would have placed your eyes in back. By a great support from my family and doing the above. I'm in Gods hands. Its his novel. Let him write it.
