Thank you so much for the response. I don't know what an eecp is, they just ordered the ca 19 9 blood test. I told them (our doctors) it was inoperable just from the doctors conclusion in Miami. He is scheduling an appointment with dr greenbaum, he does consultations for thomas Jefferson and up in Scranton where we are. Our family doctor said they will prob go the chemo therapy route. Does the chemo therapy actually kill the tumor or will it just buy my dad time. My family doctor said other than the pancrease my dad is in good health. They have yet to schedule a biopsy and drain the fluid from his stomach, because he's very bloated. I just want him to be able to eat, because he's getting weaker because its hard for him to eat, obviously he's not digesting the food is what I gather from the Internet. Thank u so much for your feedback. It makes me feel that I'm not alone.
