My mom's pancreatic cancer was overlooked over and over. She was in septic shock one day and nearly died, still they missed the tumor after many images and removed the gall bladder instead (no idea if it was ever infected). Since then, we got the cancer diagnosis and we have dealt several times with her stent in bile duct being clogged (tumor in head of pancreas) and with recurring sepsis and C diff. Has anyone dealt and treated the Cdiff? Kept it away? Issues with stent and how did you resolve? Was not candidate for Whipple due to weak state physically.

Thanks, Silvie
