Pancreatic cancer reoccurrence
Such great tips @dotmoto. You and @wrolsen give hope.
@sadiegrace, I'll be thinking of you as you prepare for your appointment tomorrow and hope you'll share what you learn so we can journey with you.

My oncologist appointment yesterday went fine. She believes the pancreatic cancer has been back for 6-8 months with no pain or other symptoms until it caused the duodenum stricture. I am in stage 3 kidney failure and my kidneys probably couldn’t take the stress of any aggressive treatment, ie major surgery such as a whipple which I refused 7 years ago.
The 2 procedures I had to open the duodenum threw me into stage 4 with creative level at 2.34.
So we decided now would be a good time to call in Hospice to oversee care.
I am at peace with that decision. And at this time I am feeling good.
