Pancreas Cancer Web


Hi. I'm a 58 year old male in good health except for my PC. Diagosed 12/05, Whipple attempted 1/06, but Surgeon couldn't get tumor off of the Hepatic artery, so the tumor was left alone, but bypasses done and an alcohol nerve block performed. No metastic disease at all, so far. My oncologist says that due to my good health otherwise and age, my lifetime is most likely around 12-18 months. I just had my first two weeks of GEMZAR Chemo. Pre-chemo CA-19-9 TUMOR marker was 47. I have a small incision infection still healing, so Oncologist held off on adding TARCEVA till my next cycle of CHEMO. I'm getting the boxing gloves off for this fight!!
