Did they see a mass in his pancreas? CA19-9 should be under 40. 135 is high & if there is a mass in his pancreas that should be all the info they need to start treating. Drs. tried twice to get a positive biopsy on me -- the first a needle biopsy was inconclusive. the second time they hoped to get brushings via ERCP but couldn't get into the pancreas. Next stop -- a Whipple & it was PC. Sometimes the only definitive diagnosis can only be made via surgery. It appears to be slow growing which is great news. Get him to another oncologist or surgeon who has experience with PC while he still has a chance. This diddling around is ridiculous.
