Arrow Dad has pancreatic cancer and spread to his spleen and lung

He was diagnosed 2 weeks ago with stage 4. Anyone ha the same situation??
Please give details? How serious is it ? And is it worse than those who spread to the liver?? Any very advanced hospitals in this planet which can deal with this case. Is There any better centers than those on the states somewhere else around the world??? My family is pushing on my dad to eat is it a good idea or bad on this state ?? Which kind of food h should avoid?? I know I am askin a lot but he is my loved one and feel helpless for him and dont know what to do

Re: Dad has pancreatic cancer and spread to his spleen and lung

Have you contacted PanCan? They can give you so much information. Sometimes it hurts to eat. Can you get him to drink something like Ensure? mashed potatoes? watermelon?
The outcome is usually not good. THe problem is this cancer is diagnosed so late. You do need to talk to someone. Is hospice being called in? Is he having any treatment. Let you dad know you love him
