Re: pancreatic cancer???.please help

Hi, people I knew who had p.c. had the pain in their left side. 7 years of symptoms you would know by know if you had p.c. You had your gallbladder removed. I had read if stones were still in the ducts that could still cause issues.
Can you switch to a whole new round of doctors, insurance permitting, to get some new ideas? Sorry not much help from me...

Yes, my mother has just been diagnosed with Pan cancer, but 8 months of pain in abdomen and back...and lost 80 lbs! All her CT scans and blood were fine. But her liver levels shot up recently. You would DEF know by now if it were pan cancer, since it's been 7 years. I'm probably not a lot of help, and I'm so sorry you're in pain. It was FINALLY an ultrasound on abdomen that finally showed the mass on my mother's pancreas - FYI.

Good luck. Hope you are feeling better soon!!!!

Hi you probably need an ERCP. It's just like an endo but on the end of the scope there is tiny scissors. This procedure can drain out your bile ducts, which might have a stone or just sludge in there, or it could be your pancreatic duct that is closed up. Almost everyone I know who had their gall bladder removed, has experienced this weird pain, even me. My pain was from closed ducts. Good Luck

Try to make contact with one of these guys: Gastroenterologist or Oncologist
They are the specialists who might have the answer for you.
I went three drs before I finally went to the ER. The dr there promptly ordered a CT Scan having listened to my symptoms. I had a diagnosis within a week and am now undergoing chemo for Pancreatic Cancer 3Best of luck guy!
