I loved Billy Boys answer. So sorry to hear about your husband. It is such an awful time when you first find out someone has pc. Not only are you dealing with hearing the word "cancer", then you add pancreatic to it and its more devastation. The odds are not very good, and the statistics scare the day lights out of you. It is indeed terrible to get news like that. My heart breaks for you. But on a positive note, there are long term survivors. In my quest for answers (I lost my mom to pc 8 months ago today), I have met a 6-year survivor and heard about 2 9-year survivors. And there's quite a few 3-5 year survivors, some on this chat group. It does happen and one of them could be your husband. Never, never give up. Never, never lose sight of hope. We are all here for you. We have alot of varying opinions, but thats what makes it a wealth of knowledge. Keep us posted and I'll say extra prayers for you and your family.
