My Dad is currently undergoing radiation to his pancreatic region of his abdomen. He was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma a month ago and did very well with the whipple sx. Now like I previously stated he had radiation 5 days a week for six weeks with chemo using a pump for 48 hrs at home. He is haveing alot of abdominal pain from the radiation, requireing him to take vicodin every 4 hours around the clock. My dad wouldn't even take a tylenol. How long can this last and how bad can it get. I feel helpless.
