how long does one have to live with pancreatic cancer

My dad was told today that the cancer has spread to the main artery and was told that surgery was a no go. How long can one expect to live?

Re: how long does one have to live with pancreatic cancer

I have read alot of message boards regarding that question and many people lived longer than the short time they were told by their doctor. My best friend was told 7 months but she was still working full time at 7 months. She did pass 5 months after that. However, I have read of people living alot longer than that. There are alot of different clinical trials out there. Don't give up hope.
