My husband, 52 years old was diagnosed stage 3 locally advanced
adenocarcenoma 1/30/2009. At present he is not able to have a whipple because
the tumor is against the SMA & SMV. There is no sign of mets, everything else
appears to be contained. The game plan is to use chemo & radiation over a 6
week period to attempt to shrink the tumor away from the vessels. He began
treatments 1/16/2009. Chemo (Gemzar 820mg) once a week with radiation 5
days/week. at the end of treatments we will wait a few more weeks to let the
treatments 'finish the job' then repeat the CT scan and hope for positive
results. I will update further.
