Hi clare,my husband had a reoccurance at 33 months. There are still lots of things to try so don't giveup.jimhad 28 rads and we managed to get to 51months.heis now doing chemo again and if this doesn't work there are two more chemos to try. He is 64 so your sister has her age in her favour plus a great support team with herfamily.thereis just jim and i. I am here please ask for support or help sincerely joanne

 

IT'S JO AND I DIDN'T HEAR EITHER, MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE A NEW SPECIAL DAY CALLED 'I RAISED A THOUGHTLESS PIECE OF#@$. HALLMARK MIGHT HAVE A PROBLEM WITH IT LOL. JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW I WAS THINKING OF YOU HUGS FROM CANADA JO

Hi there, i can understand your sense of panic. My husband has lived with pancreatic cancer for fifty one months. He has had a reoccurance and our specialist said that there have been many new drugs since he first got cancer, at that time, we had perhaps two options and now there are many more. I would be interested in the chemo is is having and i am happy to help if i can sincerely joanne

 

MY SUGGESTION WOULD BE A WHIPPLE [IF POSSIBLE] FOLLOWED BY CHEMO

I can feel your frustration through thelines.itcertainly is difficult when one partner wants to fight and the other is giving up. Does he have the opportunity to join a support group or see a counselor. You really need some support yourself and you are shouldering so much with your large family, is there any one there for you. I think i would want to know what the odds are of his survivial. My husband was given four percent odds and he is still here four years later. Yes, the cancer is back but four years would give him more time with your kids. Try and involve the older children if you can. Email me if you need help sincerely jo

 

thank you so much for answering me. you have saved me endless hours trying to find someone who would use the nano knife in canada. we live outside toronto on a farm. please if i can help in anyway,contact me. jim is four years out next month but the beast is back

could anyone tell me if they know of any hospital or surgeon performing nano knife surgery in canada sincerely thanks joanne

WHY DON'T THE DOCS TELL PATIENTS ABOUT THE EXTREME PAIN THEY MAY HAVE AFTER SURGERY?  WE THOUGHT MY BRO-IN-LAW WAS PAST THE PAIN, BUT HE'S WORSE NOW THAN BEFORE, AND READING ALL THESE POSTS, HE MAY BE IN PAIN FOR SOME TIME.  HE'S BEEN IN THE HOSPITAL A COUPLE TIMES TRYING TO FIGURE WHAT'S WRONG, AND LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, THEY HAVEN'T FOUND ANYTHING ON THE SCANS.  AT LEAST HE COULD HAVE HAD A HEADS UP IF HE KNEW TO READ THIS SITE.

hi there, i am sorry to hear about the pain your BIL is having. my husband has had pancreatic cancer for four years and had very little pain other than terrible gas problems.my husband was blessed to have one of the top surgeons in the world and as a result his pain was greatly reduced. it is considered to be the worse surgery you can have and had i not done all the research we would not have been prepared for the length of this surgery. he is unable to work and still sleeps a great deal every day

boy, do i understand, my husband has been battling terminal pancreatic cancer for almost four years. four years of appts,and rads and chemo and more chemo.i have lymphedema so i am also receiving treatments. no family, we are totally on our own. you are a warrior ,fighting right along with him . i bet sometimes, when you have answered the millionth question about his health and yours you will wish that old ear wax was back because i wish i were deaf sometimes,lol
