    Pancreatic cancer

    My dad was having back and stomach pains in june. He was treated for pulled muscle until August. CT scan shows mass at pancreas then sent to oncologist in late August. We foud out that lympnodes and spleen were included plus the bundle of nerves at spine. His pain was unbelievable so they started morphine which has helped. He has lost 30 pounds and lives off of ensure and soup, he can't handle over 5 bites of anything. Today was his 3rd round of chemo and it seems to be making a bad thing worse. He is nauseous and weaker every day since he started the chemo 3 weeks ago. The oncologist and staff are a great group of people but they don't give out much info at all. I'm not sure what is going on.

    Re: Pancreatic cancer

    It is certainly a very complicated situation, I send you a lot of encouragement to overcome this situation! We had to go to the Checa Clinic in Granada, Spain to treat my father's pancreatic cancer with oncothermia to improve the quality of life and as a complement to chemotherapy. He improved a lot, both in nutrition and strength, he was no longer so weak. It is not a cure, but it helps a lot along with conventional treatments.
