My mom was just diagnosed with an adenocarcinoma in the pancreas. She is having the tail of her pancreas and possibly the spleen taken out in two days. She is a very positive person and the way she is talking she wants to be back in work in about 5 to 6 weeks. Is this realistic? Can anyone provide any insight on this? I certainly do not want to squash her optimism. She is 61 and I already lost my father to esophogeal cancer 11 years ago (he was 55) so I hate cancer!!
