I am so sorry. The whole journey with my husband ‘s pancreatic cancer has been a roller coaster ride. Up and down. One step forward, 2 steps back, etc. Every time we got our hopes up, they would be dashed again. He was diagnosed shortly after thanksgiving 2021. We thought he was stage 2 and he tried so hard through both chemo regimens and radiation. Then when they took him in to do the Whipple they found a tumor low in the abdomen. They said he’s stage 4 and no longer a candidate for Whipple. The molecular testing revealed no gene mutations or anything that would make immunotherapy a possibility. So back to chemo (which gave him no quality of life) or just enjoy what time he has left.

I am sorry for the emotions you must be going through. Do you have any options to possibly go to a Mayo Clinic for a second opinion?
