I posted a message last week about my Dad's new diagnosis, and I am very grateful for the kind and informative responses that were given. This is a very supportive site. My dad spent a very long week at Johns Hopkins and left with a plan to do 6 weeks of chemo and then the whipple. His tumor is an adenocarcinoma and is 3.5 cm on the neck of the pancreas. There is no vascular involvement. They found 3 very small spots (largest is 1 cm) on his liver which the surgeon has a 'wait and see' attitude about as they are too small to do a CT guided biopsy at this time. He has said it is even possible they are not pan cancer. I am very encouraged to read some recent posts of liver mets responding well to chemo and was wondering if others here had additional encouraging stories to share. My dad is in good spirits and is taking this ugly battle one day at a time. Praying for all of us. Thanks for your help. Cathy
