Hello All. My father was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer on Valentines Day this year. It has been a roller coaster. His surgeon attempted to do a whipple surgery but aborted the surgery. He claimed it was because of lymph nodes. Said he couldn't do anything. He took out his gall bladder (pretty normal from what I've read) left all the cancer in there and sewed him up told me to take him home that there was nothing he could do. Told him that he would probably only live 20months??? I'm so angry that any doctor would give such a definitive time frame. So any how I could not accept that so I began researching. Which in hind sight I wish I would have done first but it happened so fast. My father woke up on 1/24 Jaundice. No other symptons. After tests, tests, and more tests, they finally made diagnosis on 2/14. He had surgery on 2/18.
