I am going to have to ring in another confirmation that Barbara is right. Mary, my sister's MIL, was dx'd with PC on, I believe 12/19. On the 17th we were told that she had suspicious cells on her pancreas. It didn't take too long for them to confirm PC. She had her whipple the 30th of Dec. Her surgery was complicated and her recovery took quite some time. She had no mets, but 3 nodes tested positive. By the time she was well enough in March to receive chemo she had mets to the liver, stomach nodes and vein involvement. This after all visible tumors were removed!

Please don't waste time. This is a very aggressive cancer.
