thanks for your response. Rob is 35 years old and yes he does have back pain - - I'll pass your information on to him. He has just been diagnosed - about two weeks ago. He has lost about 35 pounds over about three months time - - over the period the doctors struggled to find out what was wrong with him. They were concentrating on bowel and intestines and not the pancreas. They thought it may be irritable bowel syndrome and told him the pain was in his head ... but we now it is PC ... so his file has now been transferred to Princess Margaret Hospital and large teaching/cancer research hospital in Toronto, Ontario. He has to undergo another biopsy sometime in the next couple of weeks and then they are planning on starting chemo. We all are still in a state of disbelief and even as I type this note, I think I'm talking about someone else - someone who is not part of our family - not my baby sister's (she's 32) husband. I thank you for your information. I will continue to use this as a means of information and feedback. All the best for 1998! Laurie
