Hi there, I was reading your post on the next page and saw you are from Toronto. We started the first Pancreatic Cancer Society in Canada called Craig's Cause (wwww.craigscause.ca) and it was to try and deal with the lack of information available to Canadians and support, such as this discussion board. There are several individuals apart of our discussion board from Toronto and three in particular who are being treated at the Princess Margaret. They have loved ones with similar circumstances as your father.

Someone mentioned a seconded opinion...........I don't know if you are aware of this or not but MD Anderson has a clinic based out of Ontario I believe............that may be a good second opinon.

Lastly, on the Craig's Cause web site there is a reseacher there who responds to patient questions. If you click on 'ask a question' you can ask him this question and he will respond. There is also a patient referral list that is slowly growing so you may find some other names of oncologists that could assist you with a second opinon. Like the other poster said it is always a good idea.

I am so sorry to hear of father and hope that some of this information helps.
