In the last few years, doctors have made a lot of progress in treating pancreatic cancer. I recently read about a new medicine that has been approved for treating pancreatic cancer. I won't say that your journey will be easy, but more people, even those with those with more advanced stages, are surviving this cancer. After being evaluated by a doctor, an individualized plan will be developed by the team. My treatment included the Whipple and 6 months of chemo. That was 5 years ago. I know fatigue is a problem, but if you can get him up and walking and building his strength, it will help with recovery after surgery.
