5 days ago · CA 19-9 and pancreatic cancer: What do the numbers mean? in Pancreatic Cancer

You’re going on the right direction. With my husband we have learned his CA19-9 is very indicative of what’s going on, we have a friend whose never went above 0. My beat answer is everyone’s different, but lower is better and celebrate the little things.

It’s very good news, you want to see the number trending down. My husbands CA19-9 is very indicative of how the chemo is working.

My husband has had good results with Imodium. His oncologist has told him he can take more than the recommended dosage. Check with your doctor and see what he recommends.

We've made the decision not to have the procedure done tomorrow. With COVID-19 we believe the risks outweigh any benefits and they can do the radiation with out the beads.
The radiation he will be receiving will be 5 days, either a monday -friday or Wednesday, Thurs, Fri, 2 days off then finish up on Monday and Tuesday. The actual radiation session is 1/2 hour. Its a one time thing – 5 days and thats it. Is your mom's radiation similar?

Hi, my husband was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer Jan 2017, did chemo, had Whipple May 2017, followed by more chemo. Had been NED until Jan 2020 when we found out the cancer has returned. He is on chemo and radiation is being recommended. I would like to know others experiences with radiation and types of chemo. He is scheduled for a endoscopy tomorrow, partially to put in some “gold beads” as markers for the radiation. Has anyone else had this? With COVID I don’t want him to have the procedure if it’s not absolutely necessary.
