Sorry, that sounds like my brother..........He was diagnosed in Jan 07. His gastro told him to go home and enjoy life. Luckily, we got him into MDAnderson. He responded so well to gemcitibine and tarceva. We were 'shocked' in Dec. that they could do the whipple. In Jan 08 he sailed through the whipple and was working in only 2 weeks. It was a breeze. All lymphs, were cancer free and all biopsies!!!!!!!!!We were sailing.......... At first big check-up his numbers went from 34 to 750! I quit asking bout the nos.....Chemo quit working too. He recently started clinicals or experimental drugs. His attitude is still 100. His dr. says attitude is the battle. We pray daily. Now its in the liver.

Its hard to believe that we were one of the FEW that could have the whipple and then 0nly 1-3 months later its thriving again.

By the way, he is almost 59. He is still working 2 jobs and always is smiling......He tells me daily,,,,,It's ok, really its ok.

Please keep up positive thoughts, I believe in this 100%.

We are all in this together..........

Remember--------------It's ok. Really it's ok.
