Pancreas Cancer

No pain with PC? was posted 12/31/2005 10:14 pm by Sad Daughter

I posted awhile ago about my Dad having stage 4 inoperable PC. He had a double bypass but is not a candidate for a whipple due to vein/artery involvement.

I'm not complaining, but my Dad has NO pain and NO jaundice, and even the doctors are surprised. How is this possible? I'm just wondering because it seems that these are very common with PC. Is it a good sign?

He has just finished his 3rd chemo but won't be having a CT scan until early Feb.

Thanks, as always,

Jenn
