I am needing advice on where to look for information or if someone knows more. My father-in-law was diagnosed with pc about 2 years ago. He had part of the pancreas removed, a good portion of it, but unfortunately refused to have chemo/radiation believing it was gone. His doctor did recommend it but he just wouldn't do it. Within the last year he has lost so much weight again that he is down to 140. We went to see him yesterday and we were astonished at how he looked. He has lost more weight, the left of his stomach and back are numb from the pain, he can barely speak due to , he says lazy esphogus, which has been going on for about 3-4 weeks. He says the back pain is worse than it was in the beginning and there is a slight yellow hue to his skin. He did ask his doctor to do another CT scan on his back and side but his doctor's answer was 'You have pc, the best we can do know is have faith' Can someone help with whether it sounds as if he is getting close to passing on, are these normal signs, anything? I have researched all night and all morning with no luck. I found this forum and thought I would try here
