How often is pancreatic cancer missed.

Over the last year. I had lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks. I was nauseous and lost my appetite for a month. Everyday I was nauseous. if my eyes were open I was nauseous. I stopped being nauseous and got my appetite back last March(2017). However, I have gone an entire year of being bloated. I'm nervous that my test may have missed a small tumor. I'm starting to doubt I will ever feel normal again.

I had: 4 mri/mrcps about three months apart each.... Iron deposit on liver,pancreatic divisum. ultrasound..clean colonoscopy....clean cat scan...clean endoscope...all biopsies clean endoscope ultrasound(EUS)...clean countless stool test...clean countless blood tests...concerned about my igA being elevated. All other IG's are normal

Had my gallbladder removed(30% rejection rate on Hida scan) and a umbilical hernia repaired.

I know bloating can be a symptom of PC are there other symptoms that are common with bloating for those diagnosed with PC?

I have gained back 17lbs from my initial weight loss. I have also tried going gluten free. I feel for anybody that has PC. I haven't be diagnosed with any cancer but my mind is struggle. I'm 45 and my father died of cancer at 45. It was lung cancer. He was a big smoker and a full time bartender.

If I ever hit the lottery I plan on donating a lot of money to PC research. Even if I never get diagnosed with it.

The odd part about my bloating is I'm hungry. It doesn't stop me from eating.
