Is there anyone on here for stage IV pancreatic cancer? In my case, my husband is the patient. He has pancreatic cancer which has spread to his liver. He is undergoing chemotherapy.

Hello Marcswife
Welcome to this discussion board. I was a caregiver for my dad he started out with esophageal cancer which after 16 mos. spread to his liver. This cancer depends a lot on the individual. Marc has to have a positive mind set. He has to be determined to fight. It also depends on what stage he is at. There are some new treatments out there for liver cancer. You have to do a lot of research, ask a lot of questions. Will Marc also be having radiation treatments? Always know that if you are not happy with his dx, or his treatments you can always seek a 2nd opinion. My dad lost his battle on March 9, 2010. I am confident in knowing that he is now in heaven without any pain, suffering, or cancer! keep us up to date.
