You must consider one of the major cancer centers, one that has a GI department and oncologists that specialize in PC. This can make a huge difference in treatment and thus survival.
Your next step if not already done is to have a scan and a biopsy of the tumor to determine stage, which will in turn determine treatment. This must be done relatively quickly. PC can move fast, so you must move faster.
I hope that this helps you get started. I have survived 5 years as a stage 4 PC patient on chemo only, so don't let anyone tell you there is no hope... instead have hope. Call on me if I can help at any time.
