Hello fellow daughter,

My family has recently learned of my Dad's IPMN diagnosis for which the Whipple surgery is the standard of care. Per his doctors, he is not a candidate for this surgery.

Have you learned of any other treatment options for your Dad? I realize that a cure is unlikely but certainly there are some options to stall the progression of the damage? Any recommendations on resources to explore options?

Thanks for sharing your situation. Keep the faith. Lynn
