how long will you live with pancreatic cancer

We just found out that my 87 year old grandfather has pancreatic cancer. The doctors wont do surgery and chemo wont help. How long do you think he has to live?

Re: how long will you live with pancreatic cancer

Hi I am sorry about your grandpa. Did the doctors suggest Hospice? It is hard to say how long he has. Hospice can give your some information regarding his situation. Is he eating? Does he have blockages? There are so many variables. My best friend survived a year. The chemo bought her some time. My nephew's grandfather was diagnosed at 90. He lived 2 months. A friend of mine just lost her mom last week. She was diagnosed at the end of October. She didn't have any treatment either.
Take pictures, leave nothing you want to say unsaid, and enjoy the times you have together.

Re: how long will you live with pancreatic cancer

Thank you for your reply. The cancer doctor came and in and told us that he could last up to 10 weeks. I go see him everyday and tell him how much he's loved. Thanks again for the reply.
