    Of course the doctors canandarenot always right. Only God knows how long they have. My dad was given 6 months after a failed surgery and only lasted a month and half . We noticed my dad doing ok and then rapidly declining so we knew he would never last 6 months. His symptoms told us and he knew when the end was near. Your dad will probably exihibit signs and may know himself byhowhe feels. That's what happened with m...

      You are not alone. My dad died 3 months exactly after Pc diagnosis and we had him at home until his passing. I was completely and utterly heartbroken and grief stricken with what happens tp thepc patient. It's a cruel and ugly death and yes I too cannot get the sights and sounds out of my head. I felt so horrible for my dad and felt like I was living outa horror movie .it's been a little over 2monthssince he died and...

        I completely agree. It took us over 4 months to get my dad diagnosed with Pc. We begged for tests Nd were told he had the flu, an ulcer we were over re-acting etc... Tragically my father told me I think I have cancer.... He knew before the doctors could figure it out. He died exactly 3 months to the date after diagnosis. My father in law also died from cancer this year and same story we fought to get diagnosed and he...

          i have been on and off the message board and more off and away lately due to taking care of my dad . He was diagnosed march 21 2012 with adenocarcinoma a very aggressive form of Pc. We were first told the tumor was operable and not that large so we proceeded with surgery on April 10 with a well known and respected doctor . After 7 hours in surgery the surgeon scrubbed out and told us it was too far spread and On his...

            My dad also has stage 4 Pc and the fentanyl patch has worked pretty well and he also has oxy for breakthrough pain. The pain with Pc is unbelievable so you may want to seek out a pain management doctor like we did. My dad also had a celiac plexus block for the sharp nerve pain. My dad is now in his last days from this horrific disease but we have worked constantly to keep him comfortable. Best wishes and keep fight...

              My dad has Pc and also noticed that he gets hiccups. He even gets them at night while asleep and not while or after eating. When on his pain meds at night he sleeps through them. Wondering why too?

                  Hi there, My dad was just diagnosed a little over a month ago too. He has PC and had an unsuccessful surgery to remove the tumor but it had spread to far for removal. My dad is probably scared too but he keeps saying I don't want to die now but I know where I am going and have lived a great life. You are so right I am sooo heartbroken and it is killing me inside . I stay strong when I am with him and then breakdown ...

                      Thank you so much for sharing with us. Our dad was in great physical condition prior to this. His pain, weight loss, and malaise started around December and continued to worsen. His surgery was on April 10th, so just over 2weeks now. I guess we need to be patient and give him time to recover. He has been walking almost everyday since. We have had a hard time balancing/managing his pain meds/constipation/nausea/pancre...
