Grandma has pancreatic cancer

My Grandma had jaundice and was in the hospital for surgery but when they went in the doctor found the mass on her pancreas and. Told us she had a mass about four cenimiters on the pancreas. So we went and did a biopsy to confirm it and it came back that she did in fact have it. So we went to the oncologist today and she told us that it has spread to the lymp nodes. I am 20 and she is basically my mom. What am I suppose to do? I am strong around her but when I leave all I want to do is cry. What am I suppose to do?

Re: Grandma has pancreatic cancer

Cry, it's ok to cry and then when you are with her tell her everything you want to say, how much you love her and what she means to you. Then support her in whatever decision she makes regarding treatment. It's a nasty disease and the outcome usually isn't good. You want her to feel comfortable so you need to talk to the dr and find out everything you can. I'm sorry she is having to deal with this. Your grandma is lucky to have someone care for her so much
