My husband has been diagonised with pancreatic cancer at Christamas, since then he has had the whipple surgery and while recooperating(5weeks) from the surgery the cancer has spread to the liver. The oncologist cancelled the radiation before it ever began,and he is now on Gemzar 100 minutes every other Monday and Oxiplatin(spelled wrong-used for colon cancer patients and experimental in pancreatic cancer) for 100 minutes on every other tuesday. This has all happened in 3 months. I would likem to know what treatments will be available now that it has spread to the Liver.His doctor is still keeping him on the chemo for 6 months. Can they do radiation to the liver afterwards? Is this a Death sentence nowthat it has spread to another organ? I am beyond devastated. He is only 49 years old and he is my best friend in the whole world. Is there anyone out that it has metasized to another organ and what are they doing to treat you? Thank you for any information you can provide and God Bless.
