My husband has stage IV PanCan w mets only to bone. The cancer is all thru his spine, hips, a rib and one femur. It doesn't seem to be spreading anywhere else?? His CA19-9 levels have been rising while on Folfirinox, (48,000), so the assumption is that it is not working. We have already gone thru Gemcitabine and abraxane. He has just suffered a bout of pneumonia and a nasty uti that required hospitalization. I am doubtful that they will continue the chemo. Where do bone mets progress to? Why are his organs unaffected (minus the pancreas)?? His pain is tremendous and I am in the horrible position as a caregiver of wanting to save him, but worrying that he will suffer tremendous pain and bone breaks until the end...
