    If you are talking about nanoknife, then I'd like to respond. My father had nanoknife surgery in 2012 when it was just introduced as an option for pancreatic cancer patients. He lived 3 more years without any cancer showing up in his body until he passed away from a deteriated colon wall, specifically due to the amount of radiation and chemo he went through before finding nanoknife. I would HIGHLY recommend those who...

      I am still doing great although I have to take gemzar and abazane to keep those nasty cancer cells in check.  My CA19-9 number have been staying in the lower 200s for the past 5 months  and have been coming down slowly.  I went skiing at Lake Tahoe last week so still have plenty of energy.  I reduced my treatments to every 3 weeks as the 2 week regimine was keeping me very tired.  My oncologi...

        This is Bill reporting in.  It has been 2 years and 2 months since my nanoknife surgery and 4 years and 2 months since my inital diagnosis.  I am currently taking gemzar and abraxane every 3 weeks.  Cancer markers are right now 225 with no signs in my recent CT scans of my small metasis growing.  I feel great with the 3 week regimine.  I got weak with every two weeks regimine and lost all my ...

          Hi Carien,   I am responding to your comments because I too have had Stage 3-B inoperable PC.  The initial 5-FU and radiation treatment did not shink my tumor,  therefore still inoperable because of veins and arteries being encapuslated by the tumor.  I participated in two clinical trials which kept the tumor and spread of the cancer at bay.  Two years and three months ago I discove...

            Yes, I had nanoknife surgery on Jan 16, 2012.  If you are a candidate I would highly recommend doing it.   I believe that I would not be here answering your request if I had not had the surgery.  Dr. Robert Martin at the University of Louisville  performed my surgery and he had probably more experience than anyone.  I would be glad to provide you as much information as I can.

              Have you investigated Nanoknife surgery?  If not, you may want to contact Dr. Robert Martin at the University of Louisville.  He would need the latest CT scan to evaluate this possibility.  Get it to him ASAP.   Phone number is 502-583-8303 or 800-872-8033.  His nurse, Tracy, can help you with details.   I will be praying for you and your sister.  Bill Roeh

                Regarding Nanoknife surgery.  I had this operation performed by Dr. Robert Martin at the U. of Louisville on 1/16/12.  My tumor was "inoperable", with by initial diagnosis being done on 2/16/10.  The surgery also removed several metastisis.  There was no other option for me. Prior to the nanoknife surgery I had the standard 5-fu and radiation treatment which did not shrink the tumor at all. ...

                      HI,  In response to your questions about Nanoknife surgery.  I had Nanoknife surgery on my inoperable tumor on Jan 16 this year at Univ. of Louisville performed by Dr. Robert Martin.  I have battled pancreatic cancer for two years and at the initial diagnosis my tumor was 4.2 cm and inoperable because of involvement of the veins and arteries.  When I discovered Nanoknife last Dec. I sent Dr. Mart...

                      I was diagnosed with pancreatic andenocarcinoma Feb 16,2010. In March of 2010 I underwent treatment with 5-FU and radiation for 5 weeks. Results were no shrinkage in tumor. In July of 2010 I enrolled in a clilnical study at Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center using erlotinib and sorafenib. I was in that clinical study for 8 months until my tumor started growing again. Now trying to determine next step. I am investigating the use of medical marijuana as a treatment.
