Hello to everyone out there.
My future Mother-In-Law was told she has a tumor in her pancreas, wrapped around her bile duct.
Within three weeks she has had a series of test including an ERCP and most recently an ECU. The only reason she went to the doctor was she had jaundice.
I don't understand why she DOESN'T have an oncologist and an gastrointerologist (sp?) is performing all these tests!?!
The placed a stent in her at the blockage, but she still isn't getting proper nutrition because she's not eating well or as much as she should be.
Has anyone gone through this?
My Grandmother just passed away recently with the same cancer. She was evaluated much differently and started chemo within a week. She also had the Whipple surgery. She lived with cancer for almost 4 years.
