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.

Hello @marvinjsturing
I so appreciate your providing such good, as well as encouraging information, about current treatments for pancreatic cancer. You really have a good handle on what is available now. I'm sure that all of the Connect members who have this disease are also appreciative of your knowledge as well as the fact that you share it here on Connect!
