Hi, I have been on the pancreatic cancer chat for a few weeks, the reason i
am here now is the doctors keep dx and re dx, my brother
he is 42, and has been in severe pain in his abdaman, he is on pain meds
which help, he frequentley vomits but is hungry, he is loosing weight,but not
drastic. he has had ercp, cts, mrcp, these test showed a tumor behind his
pancreas, a couple weeks later, they said it had diminished??? and it may be
pancreatitis, now he went to an ongoligst
last friday, and HE said there may be a blocked bile duct and he is not
ruling out cancer, he is to get a brushing scope, and they also mentioned
maybe a stent if needed, I have been on the computer 24-7
looking up infor on pc, can someone here tell me what the symptoms for
bdcancer are? they did not suspect gullstones eailer, so im hoping it will be
that! he also had c19-9 and both test were low to normal.
I hope someone can help me with the symptoms. so i can help him..
this has gone on WAY TO LONG especially someone like my brother who has never
been to the hospital in his life....thank-you so much
