Pancreas Cancer Web


My husband, Abbas, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in July of l998 and had the Whipple, chemo, and radiation. I brought him back to Egypt to be with his family (I am American). Now he is in great pain, and has lost somuch weight he looks like a skeleton. The doctors here say the genza will help, but apparently not any more, as everything he eats and drinks, he thows up. Can anyone help me? Can I do anything for my husband? I asked the doctors but they brushed me off. Who has seen one of their family die this way? I want to know what happens next.
