RE: Pancreatic cancer!

by Treasure - June 12 at 3:34 PM

Hi Dave, I too had a large tumour in the head of my pancreas which started to move up into the bile duct. I too had a stent put in and after afew days my colour started to return to normal. I did have the whipple procedure followed by 6 months of chemo. This rotten beast came back in two areas of my liver afew months after finishing treatment. I was given 5-6 months to live and put on a more agressive chemo for pain! 

I was no excepting this and knowng there is a high power I got God involved n my journey! For me, this was xactly what I needed as I askd God to take charge of this journey and bring me through to victory! For me this extra powerful help did just that. 

That was almost 8 years ago, so there s hope , this is a sneaky type of cancer, but it's not the death sentence it once was! Chemo is not like it was years ago as they have many antinausea drugs to help you through this, should chemo be suggested. Not sure what will be recommended for you, but I wish you all the best! 

Life is great! And I know I'm only here by the grace of God!

What an awsum testimony! ! God still is in the miracle performing business! 

Great news George, our God is awsum! God is still the same as in Bible time days and he's still in the mracle making business! I too, shocked all the cancer care team when given afew months to live, I went home and knew, this same Jesus that washed away all my sin could certainly wash away this wretched cancer once and for all, and I left this cancer problem with God, because I knew God can do what no one els could do. It's almost 8 years of freedom of stage 4 pancreatic cancer and I know, this will never come back! Praise God for all he will do for the whosoever! God is very much alive ! !

Continued good health

I had mine in two and a half years and the only reason they took it out was because I developed a blood clot in the end of it. They like to leave them  in up to 5 years in case there is a recurrence. Talk to your oncolgist . 

Happy your treatment is over with, blessing as you continue on!

RE: Just diagnosed

by Treasure - April 09 at 3:47 PM

Hi. My friend, you are absolutely right, our God can do unbelievable things! I too, had stage 4 pancreatic cancer and I asked God to take this journey with me. It's only God that knows our future and God led me to one of the best oncologist  and introduced me to the best team to help me through this journey. It's God that loans oncoligsts their knowledge and it's God that hand picks the right treatment plan. Jesus said, we can ask for anything and if we truly believe it's ours. Gven 5-6 months to live, I went directly to God and asked him to take this disease from me once and for all. God took control of this journey and I know I am only here today by the grace of God. It is almost 8 years since my diagnosis and my life if better then ever before. Our God is pretty awsum and is still able to give healngs today.  I wish you the very best as your journey begins. . Keep close to God , and don't look at the problem, focus on God! Pray, trust and most of all, believe. God can do what no one else can! 

Blessings

Try not to worry Jo'ey,  you have come this far and from time to time, things may pop up to cause your numbers to rise but they will also come back down, you'll see. . 

Hugs,.joy

Hello to you also, I can tell you I have a couple of clients that have had this happen to them also and there are afew things that can trigger your ca19-9 numbers to rise. You will find that because you are a diabetic these numbers will fluxuate from time to time. Inflammation, fluid in tissues, antibiotics, some suppliments, even drinking tea and acid reflux! Your numbers are still in a reasonably good range, and your scans are great, it's mportant to keep your sugar on track. Try not to worry, your oncologist is keeping a good eye on you!  Everything will be fine!

Blessings as you continue on this journey

Hi Barnstaple, I had stage 4 pancreatic cancer, had the Whipple also. Mine was n the pancreas, bile duct, lymphnodes, and liver.. I can only tell you , this is an agressive cancer and when you first begin chemo, it's a very hard experience. I too ended up in hospital for one night,  they have different antinausea drugs to help you through this time, it's just to get the right one that suits you. It's important to eat before chemo! Stay away from suppliments as they may interfer with chemo. Ensure is an excellent source of nutrients to take . I can tell you for me, I also did not want to do this chemo and I knew I needed some mighty powerful help to get through this journey, so I asked God to get involved and help me through this , because i knew chemo was just a treatment, but with God it was a permanent recovery. . My brother had this cancer, did not do chemo and passed away within a few months.. it's going on 8 years and it's God that not only helped me through this treatment, but he brought me through to victory! There is hope! But, you have to do your part and ask God to do the rest! Blessings as you continue this journey.

RE: Chemo before or after surgery?

by Treasure - March 01 at 8:25 PM

Them before Whipple is usually recommended because the tumor is to near a portal vein or as n your mms case it's near the blood vessel. Having chem before, shrnks it enough so that the surgeon can go in and remove the entire tumor leaving nothng behind! Chemo gven after a Whipple is usually recommended if cancer was located in other areas. Either way, the do have great drug to help you through chemo . It's important to eat before chemo and drink lots of fluids also. .it's not wise to take any suppliments whilst n chemo . You can take ensure as it's loaded with the proper amount a nutrients the body needs. I can tell you, when I was on this journey, I knew .needed some mighty powerful help and so I asked God to take this journey with me because I wanted this cancer gone once and for all! Chemo is just a treatment, but it's God that brought me through to victory! It is going on 8 years since I was told 5-6 months to live. .it's God that can do what man cannot!

Blessings as you both start this journey!

They suggested gemcidabine after Whipple as a precautionary measure, due to my cancer was not only in the pancreas but outside the pancreas in my lymph nodes and small intestine. Gemcidabine is a milder form of chemo . I did gastronal folfirnox which is a very agressive treatment and after two treatments my pain was gone! My ca19-9 numbers dropped down to half and I knew that God was at work! Each treatment brought me closer to God! Today I juice every morning, and I can eat what ever I want but much smaller amounts because I also had part of my stomach  removed. I'm back working with patients but cancer patients only. Chemo is harsh but with all the wonderful antinausea drugs they have it becomes easier to do. For me it was important to get God involved in this journey because I could not have done it without him! ! My patients that are now in remission will tell you it's God that brought them this far.. hang in there because there is hope . And it's God that holds the future! And it's God that  brings victory ! 

Blessings as you both continue this journey!
