        My ct scan detected a pancreatic mass then they did an endoscopy to confirm. Can you get your doctor to order an endoscopy. They will give you a sedative and go down your throat with a camera and can take tissue to biopsy. That would be my next move. Also did they do a CA19 with blood work? You need to get to the bottom of this. Keep pushing for answers. Good luck !!!.

          Don't be worried about frightening me. I would rather know the truth then not. I talked to the dr I saw yesterday. My reg dr is out of town. She did not think there was anything that needed to be done. I told her I have every symptom listed under pelvic ascites. I have appt. with my reg. dr Mon and I think he will be more informed. In the meantime..I'll be after some more answers from the cancer center I go to. ...

            I am so sorry to hear about your wife. Thank you for sharing. Sounds exactly what I have been going through. Vomiting daily has been my major complaint for awhile.

Difficult to take a deep breathe. I ma...

              Thank you for your response. I'm 58 and usually go alone.  I was there for chemo...currently doing gem and Abraxane. It was cancelled yest.cause my labs were low. I had transfusion in the hosp. 4 days before. Platelets are low and my legs are full of black and blue marks. . She did talk about the fluid being the reason I showed a 13 lb weight gain in a week. Other then that no mention of doing anything for it. M...

                I was dx with pancreatic cancer in May of 2017. So far the cancer hasn't spread. Have had several rounds of chemo and radiation and seems things are stable. After a stay in hospital last week from extreme abdominal pain..clammy..breathing trouble..vomiting and few other symptoms  I was told my ct  scan shows moderate pelvic ascites. Seems there wasn't a concern from the Dr. but after reading about it online...
