Pancreas Cancer Web

Last Rodeo for Me

I was diagnosed in April 2013 with pancreatic cancer;had laproscropic surg ery May 9, followed by 6 mos of Gemzar chemo; clear 3 months then cancer nodules found in lung; took infusions and chemo orally; then chemo orally;last ct scan showed Beast invaded lining of my abdomen; due to start combo of Gemzar and Abraxane. Given 6 months - 1 yr to live. Anyone out there taking this combo? I'm 73 yoa wfm and have felt good most of the time. Am concerned that if this new regime isn't going to extend life and infringes on quality of life for time I have left, is it worth it?
