I don't know where to turn, I'm 35 years old and just found out my dad has a tumor on his pancreas. Let me back up and tell you the predicament. Three weeks ago he was having bloating so he went for a ct scan, something was shown on the pancreas, so they wanted to get a closer look and ordered an MRI with dye. Got the results back and said it was a pseudocyst and they were just going to drain them in the meanwhile he was referred to a gi doctor who said the bloated was caused by gastroparesis - gave him ethyomicine, doing nothing, our friend is a trama surgeon at Miami university - says it didn't sound right and could we send him the scan - we did, he had two radiologist and a surgeon look at it and said its definitely cancer looks advanced and spreading to the stomach lining, inoperable because its attached to the vessels, no hope, gloom and doom and we didn't even get a biopsy yet. The chief of radiology confirmed the tumor after i called my family doctor and asked him to have someone look at it again. Do I have any hope. My dad is 70, in pain, and bloated over everything he eats. We have a doctors appointment tomorrow to do the C 19 9 test, all other bloodwork came back fine. I know this seems bleak I just want to hang on to some hope, I'm in shock and didn't know where to turn. I apologize for the typos I'm a little out of sorts now.
