My 71 year old husband was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer on 12/12/12 and had a Whipple Section on 12/21/12. Immediately after the surgery the surgeon said 'they got it all - all they could see' but the pathology report came back one month later saying there was 'microscopic malignancy' left in the tissue and that chemo and radiation were recommended. It's been 5+1/2weeks since the radical surgery and he's lost 20 lbs since then. We were told today, shockingly, by his doctor (not the surgeon) that he might have 10 mths to live if he didn't have treatment and that treatment didn't really work with Pancreatic Cancer. I had something totally different in mind i.e. that microscopic was some little thing that could be evaporated or contained with alternative therapies, eating an alkaline diet and possibly chemo and radiation. We're stone carving partners and have been together 24-7 for 37 years. We want him to live and we want to continue our 'sweet life' together. Anybody got any light they can shed on this for us? Has chemo worked for you? Have you heard of Insulin Potentiating Therapy and if so has that worked for you? Has anyone done any Alternative Therapies that have worked for them? Are there things that haven't worked for you? I appreciate the sharing. SusanZ
