In October of 2009, my mother was told that she had pancreatic cancer. She was 64 years old and has never been sick a day in her life. Really healthy with a healthy lifestyle. The wheatgrass type...You know what I mean! She had a whipple 5 days later. She was only in the hospital for a total of 5 days and went home without any problems or complications. About 6 weeks later she started Gemzar and Zeloda. She stayed on that program for 6 months with very little side effects. In July of this year (2010) her cancer markers where elevated. A CAT scan showed 3 small growths in the peritoneal cavity. The next week she got a port placed and started Folfox.
