As most of us here can tell you - there is always hope - even if it is advanced - once they take care of the gastroparesis and if your dad wants - they can start him on chemo and radiation. But I would think about going I a different hospital. Mistakes can happen - especially with PC - it is so difficult to detect - but you are on the right track and going in the right direction. It won't be easy but once things clear up a bit please always look for that ray of light.

I pray they know for certain what is causing these problems - did they do an Ercp? At least they can get in and take a picture to see things more clearly.

You have come to the right place - please come here with any questions you may have. Go to the Hopkins site and look up ' questions to ask' - it will help you when you meet with the doctor.

Also - let us know where you are willing to travel - we can let you know the names of hospitals and doctors that we have had good experiences with. Hugs and take a deep breath - do you have someone you can bring with you to the docs - it helps to have a 3rd set of ears.
