Sorry to hear about your father. Although outlook is not good responses depend on the individual, exact type and location of cancer, amount of pread when diagnosed etc. My husband aged 48 had tumour in body of pancreas with only local spread. It was inoperable due to vein involvement. However he had gemcitabine/cisplatin chemotherapy and then radiotherapy and survived 27months. 18months of that was good quality with pain mainly removed and he was able to return to work and get a 3 week holiday in New Zealand.
I have set up a web-site of UK info at http://www.pancreaticcancer.mysite.freeserve.com
email me if you want more info.
