I just found out my grandmother who is 71 has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. I am in need of some informaiton from someone(s) that have gone throught the process of chemotherapy or the surgery to know how to talk with my grandmother about her treatment options. The first words our of her mouth were that she did not want to live the last few weeks of months of her life feeling bad because of the treatment options she has to choose from.

What ever infomation anyone could share with me will help be to devise a plan to speak with her about her disease. Of course I would like to see her stick it out through the different treatment options but I also dont want her to be miserable during the process.

Thank you all for your help with this difficult request.

Clay
