Grandpa has been losing weight steadily since he hasn't been able to eat much for a couple of months. He is depressed. The family is depressed. We were told the tumor is 4cm. We were also told that the reason he cannot eat is because the tumor is in the body of the pancreas and it is pushing on the stomach.
I've been doing some research but figured I should find some support groups. One of my friend's grandpa was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and he passed away after 5 months of being diagnosed. Chemo was not an option for him.
Anyone have family members or has anyone been diagnosed with pancreatic
cancer on this online group? Just looking for anything on it and to I guess
share. I'm not sure what else to do at this point. A bit shocked and lost.
