SORRY TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR DAD.MY HUSB PC WAS DIAG THE SAME WAY 11/99. HE WAS JAUNDICED, THE GASTROLOGOIST OPENED BILE DUCT, WAS SCHEDULED FOR GB SURG. THATS WHERE THEY FOUND PC, THE DR DID SOME KIND OF BY-PASS SURG.THE PC WAS INOPERABLE,HE JUST FINISHED RADATION, AND STILL HAVING CHEMO ONCE WEEK. AS THIS TREAT.IS NOT A CURE, WE PRAY EVERYDAY THAT IT WILL AT LEAST SHRINK THE TUMOR. PERHAPS RADATION/CHEMO COULD BE AN OPTION FOR YOUR DAD. KEEP DOING RESEARCH DONT GIVE UP. IF YOUR DR IS NOT WILLING TO DO CHEMO/RADATION AT LEAST ASK WHY, PERHAPS GO TO ANOTHER DR. GOOD LUCK.
