Well, I have great news. My mom was DX with PC in Feb. of this year and given a few months. The tumor was 4 by 5 and wrapped around her celiac artery. Many, many problems along the way. Anway, we were told in July after a CT scan that the tumor was no longer there. Her ca19-9 was at 16. This was unbelievable. The new news is..she just had her ca19-9 taken again and it is at 3!!!! Please, for everyone out there tackling PC, there is hope!! My mom was at the worst and it is gone!! She was doing gemzar and Fred's vitamins. My moms attitude was...don't ever give up. She knew the PC would never beat her. She fought with all her might. Everything that came at her, she did and then fought. She still takes pain med. for pain. We believe that was due to radiation. That put her in the hospital for 9 days and almost killed her. She also is giving herself blood thinner shots every day now for thrombosis. She is still a sick woman, but getting better every day. I just needed to share some great news with everyone. Don't ever give up!!!!!!
