My mom was just diagnosed with the same thing as your mom. Her tumor is at the head of her pancreas and is the size of a lemon. She too starts chemo/radiation the first week of January. The oncologist at MCV in Richmond has told our family that he does not expect the chemo/radiation to help and doesn't expect the pancreas to respond. If it doesn't, she's looking at 6-8 months. What have you heard?
