Re: Pancreatic cancer stage 4

I am no expert in this believe me, but sometimes chemo can reduce the tumors enough to become a candidate for surgery depending on where the tumors are. The "right" combo of chemo can make a difference in quality of life. Sometimes situations come up making procedures necessary even without chemo. Again, check out pancan, read up on everything so you can make an informed decision. Good luck. Where has the cancer spread to? His liver?
