      I can tell you who was a huge help to me regarding my husband.  Go to pancreatic.org.  Click on the left where it says "How We Help". There is a phone number and email for Allison Miller.  She helped us find a terrific doctor to handle Mike's treatments. Good luck let us know.

        My husband (50) was diagnosed in February and started chemo in March- Gemzar and Abraxane.  Fatique is by far the worst side effect that has stayed with him all the time.  But he has had multiple side effects- swelling, nose bleeds, nausea and vomting, numbness in hands, etc etc. He just had a 3 week break and had another chemo this past Wednesday.  Tonight is when the nausea will kick in.  But...

            Hi Everyone- My hubbys feet and ankles swelled up so bad too.  He could not wear shoes and had to use a walker around the house.  it was a horrible painful side affect.  This lasted about 2 weeks.  The doctor has since prescribed dexamethasone to help.  He goes for another round tomorrow so hopefully will help.

              What great advice.  Mike is Stage IV and is doing OK chemo wise as far as his numbers but the side effects have been horrible to the point he has honestly considered stopping. I hate the thought of "hospice shopping" but when the time comes i dont want him (or me) to have to then worry about finding one.   I like the idea of caring for him at home as long as we can.

                It's been very hard on my hubby.  He completed 2 rounds of Gemzar/ Abraxane 3 on 1 off then they switched him to 1 on 2 off 1 on because his boday needs the rest.

                  Mike had one PET scan which basically showed the same mets as the CT scan.  They do however check his CA-19 level every appointment.

                    Mike is always cold after chemo.  We live in Vegas and it is hot but he walks around with long pants a shirt and a sweatshirt.  He has had episodes of chills as well but usually along with a fever.

                      Wow I'm sorry!  Mike has definite short term memory issues but nothing as bad as that.  I hope your husband has a full recovery from the stroke.
