I can not thank you enough for all your good wishes and advise. I had contacted PAL via e-mail last weekend & have spoke to someone there several times s well as getting e-mails with hospitals and doctors none of which are in the central coast. We had no success this morning trying to get into see husbands internist in Sansum Clinic till the 11th then he would refer to oncologist at Cottage hospital in Santa Barbara. Since Sandra in Texas gave the number for Stanford oncology department I called them after hanging up with his doctors office and we have an app the 5th with the Tumor Panel/Board. We went back and got copy of the endoscopy/bx/ultrasound and faxed it ourselves. By the time we got home the surgeon who went over my husband scan with him in Santa Barbara assured us he would get him into oncologist to start his treatment. My husband told him we were going to Stanford and mentioned that in our research for pancreatic cancer surgeons his name did not come up he said he did the majority of them (Cottage in SB) so I feel that Stanford is a good place to start with a panel of pancreatic experts. thanks again Stephen in ca, Ron's Liz, Shelly, Julie & anonymous for your help. I am making a note of all and putting it into the binder we bought soon as we got home. I am in such a state that I need my husband to be one of the a warriors on this board, because right now he is convinced if the chemo is the same it does not matter who administers it.
