I agree with you about the time lapse between tests. I have learned that pc is rather hard to diagnose. In my Mother's case, a spot was noticed on her pancreas on November 1 after gall bladder surgery, but the doctors decided to let her recuperate from that surgery before looking closer at it. 2 months later it had grown considerably, and a whipple was attempted 2 weeks after that, but it had grown and spread so they just closed her up. It is very frustrating sometimes. The surgery was done in February, and now the last day of April, Mom is finally getting her first dose of Gemzar! The time lapse scares me, but have put my trust in God and know he is watching out for her. Good luck to you. Carol S
