Re: pancreatic cancer

Hi
my father had a severe panceatitis attack.last year..altho not an alcoholic, it would be fair to say " a heavy drinker' that is what causes pancreatitis.
Do hope that your husband has stopped drinking?
hilst in hospital,dad was found to have a lump on his chest, which was cancerous, has had 30% of his lung removed, and chemotherapy.
2 Months have passed, and he is short of breathe pains in shoulder etc, and now another cancerous lump in lung.he will find out next week if more surgery and chemo will help.
Hes not a well man at the moment.
I dont think the 2 are related at all, but would advise that your hubby, get some scans done.
best wishes
