My husand has been told he has pancreatic cancer on Nov 1, 2013. The tumor involves the Superior Mesenteric Vein. He has been through 4 rounds of Chemo and is on a clinical trial with fluorouracil [5-FU], leucovorin, irinotecan and oxaliplatin. Mass Gen Hospital would like him to start 4 more rounds.
