My mom was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer 10/4. She did 5 weeks of radiation with 1st and 5th weeks with 5FU. She also had a nerve block. Nothing has really helped with the pain.

She just had another catscan 12/27 and is meeting with the doctor 1/2. In the meantime I picked up the scan report. It was bad. Cancer has spread to both lungs and both kidneys. That explains the trouble breathing and the trouble urinating. She is so swollen in the feet, ankles, legs and belly.

She is in increasing pain.

She has been so strong. She came to my tripletts 2nd birhtday party last night.

She really wants to know how much longer. Is this the end of the end? Or, will she be this awful for a few more weeks? She says she doesn't want to be scared but she is scared - scared to die and scared to live like this.

Does anyone have any idea on what is coming next and for how long?

Thank you
