My husband was recently diagnosed with duodenal cancer with probable liver mets. We have researched many of the procedures and treatments that may be available. My husband having watched his mother go through pancreatic cancer with all of the treatment was thinking, are you better off just not doing anything. Treatments of surgery, chemo and radiation seem to buy you about 4 to 36 months. Most of that time seems to be recovering from surgery and chemo. Just wondering if there is any information out there on survival rates doing nothing. Any comments???? Hubby feels pretty good right now and has and advanced case......just wondering if mother nature will give him a better go of it without the illness and side effects of treatments.
